Winter Festival of Lights

Experience a night trip to Niagara Falls

The Winter Festival of Lights has become a must-see attraction until the end of January for more than one million visitors from all over the world.

Around three million lights are used to decorate the 8-kilometer road from Niagara Parkway to the Dufferin Islands and other areas around the Falls such as Fallsview District, Clifton Hill and Queen Victoria Park. Besides the lighting arrangements, a highlight of the festival is the unique light show at the Falls. The Falls were first illuminated by electricity in 1979. Today, during the winter festival, the coloured lights combine with fog to create shimmering scenes.

Especially, some lighting display shows are opening free for the public. The festival starts from November 2018 until the end of January 2019. Some activities ended on Jan 6th, but there are still about 16 shows that you can enjoy. The last day of the festival is on January 31st. One of them is the Falls Illumination will open every night till the end of January in Queen Victoria Park. In this show, special lights together housed in the Illumination Tower next to Queen Victoria Place, on the roof of Table Rock Centre at the brink of Horseshoe Falls, and deep in the Niagara Gorge across from the American Falls create a spectacular view.

Besides that, Fallsview Sound and Light run at the Oakes Hotel every Thursday- Sunday at 7 pm and 8 pm features a WFOL rendition of the classic story “Twas’ the Night Before Christmas.” Visitors can also enjoy firework shows will take place at 9 pm every Friday till the end of January.

The Winter Festival of Lights of Niagara Falls was first held in 1982. Today, it is one of the largest winter festivals in Canada and the first winter light show in North America.
