The Legendary Lights of Clifton Mill, a Christmas Holiday tradition for over
three decades, highlighted on ABC TV’S ‘THE GREAT CHRISTMAS LIGHT
FIGHT’ in 2018 winning top honors as best Christmas Lights in the
Heavyweight Division, is back to bring magical holiday memories to your
entire family and friends.
“We were more than excited that ABC picked us to be featured on their show. And even more gratifying we took home the trophy and top prize. Still on cloud nine.” said Anthony Satariano, co-owner of Historic Clifton Mill. The Legendary Lights of Clifton Mill kicks off for the season Friday, November 27, 2020 through December 30, 2020. Admission is $10, children 3 and under are free with
paying adult. Gates open at 5pm and LIGHTS on at 6pm until 9pm with over 4 million lights brightening the night instantly, transforming the mill and gorge into a shimmering world of Christmas wonder.
*ALSO* We will be following all state mandated safety guidelines for
all our guests, appropriate spacing, limiting crowds, and MASKS ARE
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 every 20 to 30 mins.
- 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 1950s drive-in theatre, a County
Fair and much more lit up for the holidays! Clifton Mill has over 3000 examples of ‘Santa Claus’ on display dating back to 1850. Some are toys, some used for advertising, odd to elegant, all are interesting. Plus, a
real live Santa popping out of the chimney. Also, our ‘world-famous’ hot chocolate is back which is a crowd favorite. Hot dogs, snacks, beverages are on the menu which will be available outdoors. The Legendary Lights of Clifton Mill is an outdoor event and weather permitting.
