Onguiaahra: Thunder of Waters

Onguiaahra: Thunder of Waters

Onguiaahra: Thunder of Waters is a celebration of the history, heritage and majestic beauty that the Niagara Region has become known for.

Onguiaahra Laser & Light Show

The display is expected to be anything but ordinary; just like the three waterfalls that make up Niagara Falls.

Niagara Parks Canada will be installing a large laser & light pond fountain in Queen Victoria Park, at the bottom of Murray Street.

The multimedia performance will include an array of lights, images, lasers, and sounds. All of these aspects come together to present the story of Niagara Fall; past, present and future.

Free Admission

This outdoor event is free to attend.

Fun Fact: Onguiaahra is a Iroquois word, translating to Thunder of Waters, thus the aptly named display for Niagara Parks.


This location is easily accessible from the Marriott Fallsview Hotel and Spa. Simply exit the front doors of the hotel and turn right down Fallsview Boulevard. Continue walking, passing the Fallsview Casino on your way to Murray Street. Once at Murray, take a right and continue down the hill.
