Celebrate Thanksgiving and Fall in Niagara Falls

Fall is a special time to visit Niagara Falls. Here are just few things to see and do.

Be amazed by the transition to fall as you walk, run, bicycle, or wheelchair on The Niagara River Recreation Trail. You’ll enjoy breathtaking views complemented by bold, orange, red, and gold hues of the trees that surround you.

Plan a hike thorough the Niagara Glen Nature area or Dufferin Islands nature area and see the incredible sight of changing leaves. They started turning on October 4th.

If you’re here on the upcoming weekend (Oct., 7 and 8th) there’s a free event called Rogers Hometown Hockey Tour. The family-friendly event is open to all ages. NHL Legends Alex Luey and Derek Sanderson will be on hand. Niagara’s own country star Tim Hicks will also be here. Free parking and a free shuttle from the Rapidsview parking lot to Queen Victoria Park near the falls will be provided.

Visit the NPC Floral Showhouse and be captivated by the annual fall displays. Opens at 9:30 a.m.

In the evening see the falls illuminated in beautiful autumn colours.

Take Hornblower Niagara’s all new night-time Falls Illumination or Fireworks Cruise.

Be thrilled with an exciting ride through the lower Niagara Gorge on a Whirlpool Jet boat or hop aboard a Niagara Helicopter for a bird’s eye view of Niagara Falls. You can also ride in the air on Clifton Hills giant Ferris Wheel.

Zip through the leaves opposite the falls on WildPlays Mistrider. This attraction is open Sunday thru Friday 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. On Saturday 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.
