Every evening, beginning at dusk, Niagara Falls is transformed into an incredible, multi-coloured water and light masterpiece. Special lights are housed in the Illumination Tower, next to Queen Victoria Place; on the roof of Table Rock Centre, at the brink of the Horseshoe Falls; and deep in the Niagara Gorge, across from the American Falls. Together, these lights work to create a breathtaking view not to be missed. On March 17th, the falls will be lit green every hour for 15 minutes beginning at 7 p.m. to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.
Experience Magic at the Butterfly Conservatory
