Three enchanting places, two million lights and one legendary waterfall. That's what's involved in Niagara Falls' annual Winter Festival of Lights, the most dazzling holiday tradition in Ontario.
Spearheaded by the Ontario Power Generation, the event is Canada's largest illumination festival, attraction over 1.5 million visitors and 750 motor coaches each year. Beautiful coloured lights and animated installations are set up throughout the Falls, the Niagara Parkway and the Dufferin Islands, making up an epic 8-km trail of glowing lights.
Coming to the festival this holiday season include 15 Canadian Wildlife displays, over 50 illuminated trees in the Dufferin Islands, and the world's largest Canadian-American flag in honour of the city's border culture. There will also be the two-storey-tall Zimmerman Fountain, three-dimensional angels, Noah's Ark and much more.
On certain nights, free programs like the Fallsview Sound and Light Show, Clifton Hill's Laser Lights and night fireworks are available for guests to enjoy.
This year will mark the festival's 35th season, and it will run from November 18, 2017 to January 31, 2018. Admission to the festival is free, however donations of $5 to $10 per car or $1 per passenger are greatly appreciated.
