The Winter Festival Of Lights Is Coming Back To Niagara & It’s Enchanting

The Winter Festival of Lights is coming back to Niagara this November and will transport you into a world full of enchantment.

Named Canada’s largest free outdoor light festival, there will be spectacular displays with millions of twinkling lights.

Scattered all around the city, you’ll be able to drive through a glowing park, wander under sparkling tunnels and pose next to life-sized Christmas decorations.

Starting November 12 and continuing all the way until February 20, this event is definitely something to add to your winter bucket list.

Some must-stops include the enchanted forest, which will be filled with larger-than-life glowing animals.

Or, take a step into a princess’ ice castle at the Royal Promenade. Of course, you won’t want to miss the massive LOVE sign at Fallsview Boulevard, as it’s the perfect photo-op.

During the festival, there will also be 40 nights of entertainment and 40 nights of fireworks to enjoy.

Some events include special illumination of the Falls, free photos with Santa, acrobats, the telling of Christmas stories and more.

To view the full fireworks schedule, you can visit the website of the Niagara lights festival. You won’t want to miss the special New Year’s Eve show that takes place at midnight, it’s the perfect way to ring in 2023.

Looking for more to do in Niagara this holiday season? Make sure to check out the Niagara Christmas Market on Queen Street.

The market is open every Friday to Sunday from November 12 until December 18. You can shop local vendors, chow down at some food trucks, listen to live music, grab some photos and more.

On November 12, there will even be a parade where you can spot magical floats, marching bands, dance groups and maybe even Santa!
