The Civic Holiday weekend brings in tons of visitors every year! In order to facilitate the wide array of exciting events and celebrations planned, the following road closures will be in effect:
On Sunday, August 4th The Niagara Parkway from Clifton Hill to Fraser Hill’s road closure will begin at 7:00 p.m., with a full road closure in place by 8:00 p.m. ahead of the scheduled fireworks display (presented with support from the Tourism Partnership of Niagara) at 10:00 p.m. (weather permitting).
