Canada's foremost illuminations festival runs from November 15 to January 12, transforming the already breathtaking landscape of Niagara Falls into a palette of magnificent colour. A favourite winter attraction for local residents and visitors for more than 30 years, the Ontario Power Generation Winter Festival of Lights helps people get in the spirit of the season by walking or driving the five-kilometre Niagara Parks Winter Wonderland lighting route and visiting other displays within the Fallsview Tourist District free of charge.

"Winter's deep freeze and snowy weather tends to discourage people from travelling too far from home," said Brian Crow, Co-Chair of the Ontario Power Generation Winter Festival of Lights. "The Winter Festival of Lights encourages people to come together to appreciate how beautiful winter can be and to experience the wonder of the Falls as the area is transformed into a colourful winter wonderland."

This season the Festival will unveil a number of new lighting displays at Dufferin Islands including 3D Canadian Wildlife displays plus projection lighting that will create a memorable audio/visual experience. Of course visitors can expect to see many of the iconic displays that have become favourites for attendees including the shimmering Zimmerman Fountain and the world's largest illuminated Canadian-American flag. Some of these magnificent interactive displays make great photo-ops for family and friends so be sure to bring your camera!

"Niagara Falls is a great vacation destination at anytime during the year," said Crow. "Every season offers something special for visitors. We look forward to welcoming visitors to Niagara Falls to experience the Ontario Power Generation Winter Festival of Lights and enjoy the Falls illuminated at night."
