The Winter Festival of Lights transforms Niagara Falls into a winter fairy tale. There are 15 Canadian Wildlife displays and over 50 trees wrapped in lights on the Dufferin Islands. You'll be able to see a light show at the Toronto Power Generating Station, the world’s largest Canadian-American Flag, three-dimensional Angels at the Niagara Parks Police Building, a two-storey tall Zimmerman Fountain, and a visitor favourite—Noah’s Ark! Don't miss the free Fallsview Sound & Light Show at the Oakes Hotel, WFOL Opening Ceremonies in Queen Victoria Park, and Laser Light Shows at the Top of Clifton Hill.
