Legendary Lights of Clifton Mill
The Legendary Lights of Clifton Mill, a Christmas Holiday tradition for over three decades, is back and bigger than ever. The best time to visit is Monday through Thursday nights. Weekends tend to be a bit more crowded. The Legendary Lights of Clifton Mill kicked off the season on Friday, Nov. 29 continuing through Dec. 30, 2019. Admission is $10, children 3 and under are free with paying adult. More than 4 million lights brighten the night, transforming the mill and gorge into a shimmering world of Christmas wonder. What began as a simple idea of stringing a few strands of lights on the historic mill for the enjoyment of family and friends is now one of the largest outdoor holiday displays in the country. Now, millions of lights later, the Legendary Lights of Clifton Mill decorate the mill, trees, riverbanks and almost everything in between, including the water wheel. One of the big crowd pleasers is the covered bridge synchronized light & music show, which occurs hourly each night. Also, over 30 years ago, the owners began work on a miniature village with mini versions of some of Clifton's historic buildings built by an artisan in Pennsylvania. There have been new additions each year by a variety of artists and today it is a sight to behold with street after miniature street of scaled down homes and businesses, a tiny Fire Dept. putting out a "house fire", an outdoor train, a 1950's drive-in theatre, a County Fair and much more lit up for the holidays! Clifton Mill has over 3,000 examples of 'Santa Claus' on display dating back to 1850. The Legendary Lights of Clifton Mill is an outdoor event, weather permitting.
