At this point, many must be wondering if there’s a part of Niagara Falls that isn’t lit up like the Griswold house in National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.
With the the 39th annual Ontario Power Generation Winter Festival of Lights absolutely dominating the city’s waterfront landscape, it’s almost easy to overlook the Seasky International Light Show at Arpad Park in the city.
With over 600 handcrafted, giant LED illuminations along a 1.2 kmilometre outdoor walking trail, Seasky was established over three years ago with the vision of bringing another family friendly attraction to Niagara Region.
Count Mayor Jim Diodati among the impressed and bedazzled by the ornate light show.
“They’ve worked hard over the past few years to bring this show to light at Arpad Park in Niagara Falls. Every piece is handmade, with silk hand-stretched over each metal shell. Numerous hours of work have gone into this event and I tip my hat to all artists and contractors involved.”
Organizers say the name “unites the sea and the sky. The sea represents the distance between Canada and the rest of the world with the light show bringing our cultures together. The night sky reminds us that no matter where we are in the world, we all can look up and be connected by the same view.”
“This signifies unity and hope as the stars remind us that no matter how dark the night may be, there will always be stars to light our way,” said organizers. “The light show is a magical, unique experience that brings our world together at a time that we need it most and the team at Seasky look forward to welcoming everyone.”
Highlights of the exhibits include a footpath of luminated natural landscapes, life-like animals from the past and present, mystical characters and installations of magic and whimsy from around the world, making it the perfect seasonal and family entertainment.
This outdoor lantern extravaganza allows visitors to explore over 30 magical displays on an illuminated 1.5 km trail of lights – each handcrafted by some of the world’s leading lantern artisans and lighting up the night with creative splendor.
The park is located at 10215 Montrose Rd in Niagara Falls, located in the Árpád Park Hungarian Hall Grounds. Limited free parking. See https://lightshowinternational.ca/ for details.
The show will run until February 27, 2022 from Thursday to Sunday only, starting each night at 5pm.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies advertising
