"To see the Falls at night is to be wide awake in the land of dreams"
Don't miss the unmatched beauty of the Falls at night when the Falls are lit in the colours of the rainbow! It is indeed a great sight that can never seen at anywhere in the world. The falls at night is like a fairyland. The hue of the lighted Niagara Falls mesmerizes and seizes every visitor to stay hours at the brink of the falls.
Currently a total of 21 Xenon lights are used to illuminate the Falls. In 1998, 18 of these new lights replaced older lamps and fixtures at the Illumination tower, doubling the intensity of the lights on the Falls without doubling the hydro bills. Each Xenon spotlight illuminating the Falls at night has a brilliance of 250,000,000 candlepower.
Funding for the year-round, Niagara illumination is provided by:
Illumination of the Falls has been Financed and Operated by The Niagara Falls Illumination Board since 1925.
Who doesn't like a night with fireworks and how beautiful it is when they explode high above the sky? It is spectacular, a night with colourful firework displays high over the mighty falls!
