Every winter we hear about the lights at Clifton Mill. Metta is obsessed with Christmas lights (she shouts and oohs and ahhs from her carseat when we drive at night) so we decided to finally go.
It was WAY too expensive, but luckily kids- 6 and under- are free- so we only had to pay for the two of us. The sheer number of lights in such a small space is really quite impressive. But- it is a pretty small area- and we were finished looking around almost as soon as we'd started! We did have a really great evening, though!
That white streak of lights in the picture below blinks and
'flows' like a river down into the real river below. It was pretty fancy.
They even have a Santa's workshop with a REAL LIVE santa working on toys. Zeb and Ike had several conversations on his authenticity.
Every fifteen minutes or so- this Santa pops up out of the Chimney on the roof and waves to the kid while wishing them a Merry Christmas. It was pretty cool.
Zeb loved these icicle lights surrounded by real icicles.
I took as many pictures of creepy Santas as I could find!
