Millions of people from all over the world visit Niagara Falls each year to take in the beauty of the magnificent Horseshoe, American, and Bridal Veil Falls, while also experiencing world-class accommodation, entertainment, dining, and shopping. And while the rushing waters of Niagara Falls are spectacular to see during the day, the illumination of the waterfalls at night is unlike anything else.
This year, the Niagara Falls Illumination Board has invested in making the nighttime illumination experience even better for visitors with the addition of four million dollars worth of new LED lights. These new lights use approximately 60 percent less energy than the old ones and cut right through the mist to provide a striking and colourful illumination experience.
Niagara Falls have been lit up at night since 1925, which has made their illumination into a long-lasting and beloved tradition for both locals and visitors to see. From now until January 31st, the Falls will be illuminated from 5pm until midnight with the exception of New Year’s Eve on which they will stay lit until 1am.
Now is a great time to experience the brand new lights as the city’s annual Winter Festival of Lights is currently on and other exciting local events are fast approaching, like the Niagara Falls New Year’s Eve Celebration in Queen Victoria Park. Niagara Falls shines every night in bright and beautiful colours and the nightly illumination is guaranteed to make any evening in the city into a spectacular affair. (Photo Credit: Niagara Parks)
