If you didn’t have a chance to see the spectacular light and sound show called Onguirrha that the Niagara Parks Commission put on last year mark these dates and times in your calendar. This show which is located at the base of Murray Hill opposite the falls in Queen Victoria Park begins Friday, August 28th nightly until Monday, September 13. Show times (although not set in stone) are 8:15, 9:15 and 10:15 p.m.

Fireworks over the falls also take place at 10 p.m. on Friday, and Sunday nights as well as Labour Day, Monday, September 7th. All of these events are free.

Do yourself a favour and plan to take in at least one of these great shows.
