Experience the magic of the 38th annual Winter Festival of Lights. A winter tradition in Niagara Falls from November-January that sees more than 3 million lights and spectacular displays illuminate an 8km stretch of the Niagara Parkway, Dufferin Islands, and Queen Victoria Park.
Ranked among the best festivals in North America each year, the 2020/2021 festival is an ideal event for an unpredictable year. With ample space between displays, physical distancing can be achieved if you decide to view display by foot, or take in the scenery from the comfort of your car.
There are 3 key viewing areas:
Dufferin Islands – Home to Canadian wildlife displays featuring larger than life displays of Moose, Deer, Polar Bears-some standing as tall as 11 feet high. Dufferin also includes two-dimensional displays like the ever popular wolves howling at the moon, and bear climbing a tree.
Queen Victoria Park – Nestled between Murray Hill and Clifton Hill, and directly across from Niagara Falls, Queen Victoria Park is a great destination to view the festival by foot. The park is home to a collection of brightly lit spiral trees, old growth trees dripping in light to resemble dramatic Spanish Moss trees, and the iconic Zimmerman Fountain decked in blue and white that welcomes guests to the park at the base of Clifton Hill.
Niagara Parkway – 8km’s of the famed Niagara Parkway has been decked out with lights, trees are wrapped with bright LED in a rainbow of colour that lines the famous parkway adjacent to the majestic Falls.
