Every evening beginning at dusk, the Falls are lit in the colours of the rainbow. Don't miss the unmatched beauty of the Falls at night! Illumination of the Falls has been financed and operated by The Niagara Falls Illumination Board since 1925.
The Niagara Falls are often lit in special colours for many registered charities and not-for-profit organizations marking a significant date in support of their cause. Special Colour Illuminations are provided courtesy of The Niagara Falls Illumination Board. Please note that special illumination requests must be submitted no later than 30 days prior to the event.
