In celebration of the Chinese New Year, and in recognition of 2018 being designated the Canada-China Year of Tourism, the Niagara Falls Illumination Board will be illuminating Niagara Falls in a brilliant shade of red, on Thursday, February 8, 2018.
This special illumination will take place from 7 p.m. until 11 p.m., and is in addition to the regular illumination, which takes place nightly from 6:30 p.m. to midnight. For more information on the nightly illumination schedule, please visit our illumination and fireworks page.
All special illumination requests are reviewed and approved by the Niagara Falls Illumination Board, which has financed and operated the “illumination of Niagara Falls” since 1925. The Niagara Falls Illumination Board is made up of representatives from the City of Niagara Falls Ontario, City of Niagara Falls, New York, Ontario Power Generation Inc., New York Power Authority, New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation and The Niagara Parks Commission. It is the Illumination Board’s responsibility and mandate to finance and maintain the nightly illumination of both the Horseshoe and American Falls.
