Fireworks over Niagara Falls

2015 Falls Fireworks Series Schedule


Falls Illumination

Every evening beginning at dusk, the Falls are lit in the colours of the rainbow. Don't miss the unmatched beauty of the Falls at night! Illumination of the Falls has been financed and operated by The Niagara Falls Illumination Board since 1925.

The Niagara Falls are often lit in special colours for many registered charities marking a significant date in support of their cause. Special Colour Illuminations are provided courtesy of The Niagara Falls Illumination Board. Download the illumination request form to apply for special lighting for your event. Please note that special illumination requests must be submitted no later than 30 days prior to the event.

Special colour illuminations are offered at 9:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. (15 minute duration), subject to availability. Both Falls are illuminated. Illumination times are approximate and subject to change according to light conditions. Colours available: red, blue, amber, purple, orange and green
