"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.
Thousands of LED lights are fixed in three locations across the Niagara Gorge in Niagara Falls, Ontario. Throughout the year, Niagara Falls is illuminated for holidays and significant occasions, as determined by the Niagara Falls Illumination Board (NFIB). The falls are also lit in custom colors for short durations to mark significant dates in support of charitable causes.
All the existing Xenon lights were replaced with new, energy-efficient LED lighting technology. These new lights provide very high lighting levels, and a wider spectrum of colour.
Funding for the year-round, Niagara illumination is provided by:
- The City of Niagara Falls, New York
- The City of Niagara Falls, Ontario
- The Niagara Parks Commission
- The Niagara Frontier State Park Authority of New York
- Ontario Hydro
Illumination of the Falls has been Financed and Operated by The Niagara Falls Illumination Board (NFIB) 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!
