Published December 3, 2021 at 10:47 am

The Ontario Power Generation Winter Festival of Lights transforms Niagara Falls into a palette of breathtaking colour with millions of sparkling lights and animated displays located within the Niagara Parks, Dufferin Islands and surrounding tourist districts.

It’s also the Ontario’s Choice winner for top attraction & event from Attractions Ontario, as voted by the people, with more than a million people enjoying the two million sparkling lights along an eight-kilometre route each year.

Illuminations include fifteen Canadian Wildlife displays, the Sylma and more than fifty trees wrapped in lights in Dufferin Islands, the world’s largest Canadian-American Flag, the light show on the Toronto Power Generating Station, the two-storey tall Zimmerman Fountain, three-dimensional Angels at the Niagara Parks Police Building and a visitor favourite, Noah’s Ark.

The festival, which has become North America’s premier illumination event, also includes special programming such as the Fallsview Sound & Light Show at the Oakes Hotel, Deck the Falls Holiday Tour, the Opening Ceremonies in Niagara Parks Queen Victoria Park and the Niagara Falls Icewine Festival.

The Winter Festival of Lights runs from November 13 to February 21. For more information visit
