As COVID-19 forces countries around the world into lockdown, communities are coming together in the sweetest ways to send messages of love and solidarity. One of Ontario's largest tourist destinations found a way to shed light on a dark time, despite many of its attractions being closed. Niagara Falls glowing heart signs are being displayed from hotels and casinos to send hope across the city.
Niagara Falls, usually a bustling hub of activity, has become unusually quiet, like many places around the province.
In order to come together in a period of uncertainty, hotels and casinos in the area are lighting up with hearts to send the community some love.
The giant symbols shine across the city, reminding residents to stay positive and connected.
"Our hotels and casinos in Niagara Falls are lighting up glowing hearts as a sign of hope and solidarity," Niagara Falls Tourism shared in an Instagram post.
"As a community, we are united on the fight to stop the spread of the virus."
The Embassy Suites is one of the venues participating in the movement. Two hearts shine from the front of the building, while huge letters spelling out "HOPE" run down the side.
"Always choose hope over fear," the hotel said in an Instagram post.
In Toronto, the CN Tower is showing love by hosting colourful light shows each evening.
The shows happen each hour for those who are currently stuck indoors to watch through their windows.
However, it's not just city landmarks that are participating in the love.
Across the province, Ontarians are also participating in acts of kindness to show their support for one another during difficult times.
From heart-warming sidewalk messages to free flowers, communities are doing their part to ensure everyone is taken care of.
If you're in the Niagara region, look out your window to see the glowing hearts lighting up the sky throughout the upcoming nights.
