Winter brings an added dimension of beauty to Niagara. The mist and spray from the falls combine with the cold drifting winds of winter to spray nearby ornamental walls, lamp posts, trees and buildings creating lovely ice sculptures. On bright sunny clear days when the sky is blue and the snow brilliantly white, these ice sculptures turn into natural art.
Be sure to bundle up warmly and bring your camera to capture the beauty of Niagara Falls. Every year the Winter Festival of Lights takes place from early November continuing until the end of January. The festival boasts literally millions of tree and ground lights and over 125 animated light displays. Best of all, it’s free for the whole family.
Join the thousands of people who congregate near the falls to celebrate a free outdoor New Year's Eve event with live entertainment for all ages. There are fireworks over the falls at 10 pm for the young ones and another display at midnight for the older folk.
When you celebrate winter in Niagara, winter will never be the same.
