Niagara Falls will be even busier — and more in the holiday spirit — than usual next weekend as it kicks off its annual Winter Festival of Lights on November 16.
The flip-the-switch celebration will feature costumes, fireworks, musical and theatrical performances, and an all-around party in Niagara’s Queen Victoria Park.
This year, the festival boasts an 8-km illuminated route with more than 50 light-wrapped trees and fifteen Canadian wildlife displays up to 3.4 m tall, as well as illuminated see-saws, the famed two-storey Zimmerman Fountain, and other attractions like a gingerbread house, Noah’s Ark and 3-D angel installations.
The lit-up displays, which are comprised of millions of lights in total, will be spread across the Dufferin Islands and other landmark parks and buildings in Niagara Falls, along with the rest of the seasonal festivities. You can catch the festival of lights until January 12.
