Online votes can be cast once per day until polls close on Dec. 7 at noon. The 10 winning displays will be announced on Friday, Dec. 18.
Tentatively — and in this instance, there is a real possibility these plans will change — the Legendary Lights of Clifton Mill will be on display daily from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. from Nov. 27 through Dec. 30. Gates will open at 5 p.m. Clifton Mill General Manager Jessica Noes said there is no guarantee the lights will open this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
If the display does open, there will be a limited number of guests permitted on the Mill’s grounds. Though reservations are not taken, guests will likely only need to wait a short while at the ticket booth for their turn to enter, Noes said. Admission is $10 per person for everyone age four and older. Children three and under are admitted at no charge.
And if those plans do change, that doesn’t mean that Clifton Mill’s legendary lights aren’t the number one public display of lights in the U.S., because the online contest/survey will go on, pandemic or not.
