Flood waters have significantly damaged The Legendary Lights of Clifton Mill Christmas light display, leaving the owners scrambling to fix the damage before the first night the display is scheduled to be open.

“We only have two weeks,” said Anthony Satariano, owner of Clifton Mill.  “We will do whatever it takes...the damage is pretty significant.”

Satariano said it appears the water levels are still rising and he’s concerned that additional damage is possible before the water recedes.  He added that the damaged to the light display hasn’t been this significant since 2008, when they had a similar incident.

“All of them along the river are gone or broken,” Satariano said. 

The display is scheduled to be open the day after Thanksgiving.
