The Legendary Lights of Clifton Mill will say thank you to some of Dayton’s finest heroes with a special event and discount this week.
Heroes Night will take place on Tuesday, Dec. 18, 2018, from 5-9 p.m. First responders, police, firefighters and military members receive $2 off $10 admission with ID. Greene County Sheriff Gene Fischer and family will be on hand to ‘flip the switch.’
The Legendary Lights of Clifton Mill has received some national attention this month. The lights display won $50,000 in “The Great Christmas Light Fight” that aired on ABC Dec. 2.
Gates open at 5 p.m., and precisely at 6 p.m., over 4 million lights will brighten the night. Clifton Mill is open 7 nights a week through Dec. 31.
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, river banks 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 hourly each night.
Clifton Mill has over 3,000 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.
The best time to visit is Monday through Thursday.
Clifton is in Greene County, Ohio three miles east of Yellow Springs on State Rt. 343, six miles south of Springfield on State Rt. 72, and three miles north of Cedarville on Rt. 72.

“With members coming in from out of state, I was so excited when Patrick [Himes] told me that Set the Controls could do their reunion on Friday night,” Obenour said. “Really, every night is going to be its own amazing experience.

Two southwest Ohio agency liquor stores will offer a limited number of all eight bottles of The Game of Thrones Single Malt Scotch Whisky Collection for sale at regular retail prices on Tuesday morning, Dec. 18.
Created to commemorate the eighth and final season of the HBO series Game of Thrones, The GOT Single Malt Scotch Whisky Collection features eight limited-edition scotches that are all new to the U.S. Each scotch is paired with one of the Houses of Westeros, as well as the Night's Watch, “giving fans an authentic taste of the Seven Kingdoms and beyond,” according to a release.
The rare scotches will be sold starting at 9 a.m. Dec. 18 at Arrow Wine & Spirits’ Far Hills store at Far Hills Avenue and Dorothy Lane in Kettering, and at Jungle Jim’s Dixie Highway store in Fairfield. Those two stores are among a dozen statewide selling the special spirits (full list below). There will be no raffle or lottery for the scotch collection; the bottles will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.
There will be a limit of one bottle per scotch house per person, or a total of eight bottles. But the number of bottles allocated to each liquor store varies per brand, which may make building a complete collection in one fell swoop problematic. Arrow Wine’s allocation, for example, ranges from 18 bottles of the House Tyrell Clynelish Reserve to 48 bottles of the House Lannister Lagavulin 9 Year Old.
The eight scotches and their price per bottle are:
The scotches will be available starting at 9 a.m. Dec. 18 at the following stores across Ohio:
