Niagara Falls Illumination: October

*The event has already taken place on this date: Thu, 10/31/2019
Hundreds of LED lights are housed in three locations across the Niagara Gorge in Niagara Falls, Ontario. Together, these lights work to create a breathtaking view not to be missed, and are illuminated every night of the year beginning at dusk. Throughout the year, Niagara Falls is illuminated for holidays and significant occasions, as determined by the Niagara Falls Illumination Board (NFIB). The falls are also lit in custom colors for short durations to mark significant dates in support of charitable causes. A schedule of upcoming illuminations for such causes is shown below, and all will take place from 10-10:15 p.m. unless otherwise noted (excluding special holiday illuminations).
