Festival of Lights

The switch has been flipped in Niagara Falls and millions of tiny sparkling lights are illuminating the Niagara Parkway. The Ontario Power Generation Winter Festival of Lights began its 32nd season on November 15 and will continue to brighten the season until January 12.

The Festival is looking forward to an exciting year with many new light displays, performers and as many as twenty fireworks shows next to the falls. The Festival of Lights is a truly incredible event with over three million lights spanning a 5km route. Some key illuminations include the world’s largest Canadian-American flag, the Skylon Tower, the two-story Zimmerman Fountain and Religions of the World displays. This spectacular sight manages to draw over 1.5 million visitors each year. It is also recognized as an Ontario Festival of Distinction and as a Top 100 Internationally Known Events in North America. This year it was even added to Canada’s 10 Most Festive Christmas Cities by Readers Digest and Sympatico’s list of Canada’s Best Winter Activities.

An exciting new addition this season will be performances by the extraordinary Zero Gravity Circus. Located at the bottom of Clifton Hill, near Mowat Gate, most weekends can expect to see LED Manipulators, Fire Artists and Stilt Characters. Also new this season is the addition of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. To coincide with the pre-Christmas film release, the top of Clifton Hill will be home to renditions of Leonardo, Raphael, Michaelangelo and Donatello.
