What better way to light up the end of the year than by enjoying Canada’s largest outdoor lights festival, with options for physical distancing, surrounding yourself and your loved ones with inspiring, bright displays of happiness, hope and cheer.

This year’s Winter Festival of Lights is delighted to add 10 brand new 3D displays, including an amazing gingerbread house, larger than life polar bears and their friend Rudolph, the Misty Kids Village, and more. Kids and visitors of all ages are invited to visit the village for pictures with the Misty Kids*, the festival’s own furry ambassadors, including Crystal Bunny, Cool Cat, Chilly Dog, and twins Flurry & Flake. (*Check wfol.com for schedule.)

Come for the lights and to reconnect with family and friends, stay for the colourful illumination of the city’s famous waterfalls—a magical viewing occasion for all, every night of the year.

Experience the spectacular light displays safely by walking along the wide-open park pathways while maintaining physical distance, by driving along the route with your family, or by viewing from the warm comfort of Niagara Falls’ many wonderful restaurant and hotel windows. Increase your comfort level by bundling up with scarves, gloves, and facial coverings while you walk through the stunning displays.

The OPG Winter Festival of Lights route is a total of 8 km (5 mi) so some driving and parking may be recommended for those with young children and older adults. Driving is also a great way to enjoy the festival within your bubble, in the warmth and comfort of your vehicle. Paid parking is available in the Falls Parking Lot, across from the Table Rock Welcome Centre, at Skylon Tower and along Clifton Hill.

Make it your winter tradition to bundle up, enjoy the fresh air and add some sparkle to your holiday plans. Overnight getaways provide the perfect staycation to explore Niagara Falls by day and night!
