Event Details

For over 18 years Clifton Mill has celebrated the Christmas season in a very special way.  Our light display is one of the country's finest with over 3.5 million lights illuminating the mill, the gorge, the riverbanks, trees and bridges.  There is even a 100 foot "waterfall" of twinkling lights.  Every night during the event, precisely at 6 pm, the flip of one switch turns all the lights on at once transforming night into a fantastical winter wonderland.  The lights have been featured in Midwest Living and Ohio Magazine.  There is a spectacular synchronized lights and music show that features the old Covered Bridge.

Visitors marvel at our animated Miniature Village complete with an outdoor train, river boats that light up as they go up and down the mill stream, a 1950s drive-in theatre, a mini parade down the main street, the Wright Brothers plane flying over, a football game in progress and much more!

The Santa Claus Museum houses the private collection of the Satariano family which has taken nearly 40 years to amass.  There are over 3,000 examples of Santa Claus on display dating from as far back as 1850.  Some are mechanical, some are toys, some are advertising items, some are weird, some are elegant, some are rustic, all are interesting.

You can peek into Santa's Workshop to see a live Santa at work and then, every 15 minutes or so, watch him check his list and go up the chimney to load his sleigh.

Great fun for kids of all ages!
