Welcome to the Winter Festival of Lights!

Info Niagara, Niagara's premiere destination guide, invites you to enjoy Canada's foremost illumination festival – the Winter Festival of Lights in Niagara Falls – as they capture the magic of the holiday season from November 15, 2014 to January 12, 2015.

Experience Niagara Falls as it's transformed into a palette of breathtaking colours with millions of sparkling lights and 120+ illuminated displays located within the Niagara Parks Winter Wonderland and adjacent tourist districts. Illuminations include the world's largest Canadian-American Flag, Niagara's iconic Skylon Tower, the two-storey high Zimmerman Fountain, and Religions of the World displays. The Festival is also excited to announce it will feature beautifully-ornate, hand-painted lantern displays from the Jinju Namgang Yudeung Festival in South Korea along with a 70-metre Tunnel of Wish Lanterns. While there is no cost to view the illuminations, donations are gratefully accepted ($5 - $10 per vehicle suggested) with all proceeds used to enhance the lights and displays.

The Winter Festival of Lights launches November 9 beginning at 2pm with Opening Festivities! The free event includes performances by traditional Korean dance and drum groups; Korean and Canadian musical entertainers (including YTV's Next Star Season 5 winner, Brooklyn Roebuck); a special tribute to Korean War Veterans; food and merchandise vendors, lantern-making, sporting and ice sculpting demonstrations; a Korean-inspired "Iron Chef" cook-off; a variety of children's activities; and photos with Santa! Opening Festivities concludes with the 'flipping of the switch' and a spectacular 15-minute fireworks performance followed by more entertainment until 9pm.

Other events in the festive calendar include Candy Cane Lane 5k Race & Fun Run/Walk held along with the City of Niagara Falls Santa Claus Parade; Niagara Falls New Year's Eve Concert; weekly fireworks; numerous dinner theatre and stage show productions; and the TD RINK at the Brink – outdoor, ice skating a snowball's throw from the brink of the Falls (open December 1 to February 28, 2014).
