Tomorrow night starting at 6 pm, Niagara Falls will be lit up in red to honour Remembrance Day and then immediately followed by red, white and blue for 15 minutes to acknowledge Veterans Day in the United States.

While they are both held on November 11, Remembrance Day in Canada and Veterans Day in the United States are honoured in two very different ways.

It is not a holiday in Canada (though many businesses hold off opening until noon) but in the U.S., it is a national holiday, even though both sides are honouring the same thing.

Niagara Falls is famous for light up the fall to mark special days so what will happen tomorrow?

It turns out both countries will be honoured. Starting at 6 pm, it was be backlit in red to mark Remembrance Days for 15 minutes.

Immediately following that 15 minutes, it will switch to red, white and blue to honour Veterans Day (known as Armistice Day prior to 1954.)

The switch back and forth will continue through the evening at the top of each hour.
