The Annual Niagara Falls Winter Festival of Lights
Welcome to Niagara Falls, home of the Skylon Tower & The Winter Festival of Lights!
Winter Festival of Lights
The Festival spans three months, from November through January, with new surprises and configurations each year. One of the latest additions is Light Art Displays, which features artworks from Canada, Hungary, Israel, Italy, the Netherlands, Singapore, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. Of course, each year the Festival is kicked-off with the Winter Festival of Lights Opening Ceremonies, featuring lights exhibits, laser-light shows, fireworks, 3D animations, as well as local vendors, music, and the perfect outing for a winter’s eve.
Skylon Tower & The Winter Festival of Lights
As you may imagine, the Skylon Tower is one of the best places to capture a birds-eye-view of the Festival, to take a step back and let it soak in from a different perspective. Now imagine watching the festival Fireworks from 775 feet above the Falls! Let’s take it one step further and add a gourmet meal in our Revolving Dining Room. Talk about the best seat in the house! When you combine flavourful food such as our signature Surf & Turf, a view that overlooks the Niagara Falls skyline during the Winter Festival of Lights, and a fireworks show to boot, how can you go wrong? What are you waiting for? Reserve your table now.
