If you haven’t visited Niagara Falls in the Winter, then you are missing out on some of the most wonderful events and attractions. Starting on November 3rd, don’t miss one of Niagara’s greatest winter traditions, the Niagara Falls Winter Festival of Lights. Picture three million sparkling lights and 120 animated displays including the world-famous Enchantment of Disney® displays. Make your Winter Wonderland experience even more wonderful, by skating on the TD Rink at the Brink ‘s open-air, outdoor rink with Niagara Falls as your backdrop. It is open from November 28th to February 28th. Plus to make your winter adventure even more exciting, each evening the Falls will be illuminated in various colours of the rainbow.
Don’t miss the newest Niagara Falls winter attraction, the Red Bull Crashed Ice 2013, which crashes Niagara Falls on December 1st. This extreme winter sport promises to be filled with excitement, exhilaration and wonder as competitors race down a 540 metre icy track, four at a time on ice skates at 60 km//hr.
If you are not a fan of the Jack Frost, there are plenty of winter indoor activities that will keep you toasty warm, like the Bird Kingdom, featuring 400 featured friends, reptiles and more. They are the largest free-flying indoor aviary in the world. There’s also the Butterfly Conservatory, The Canadian Midway, located on Clifton Hill, featuring 70,000 square feet of fun (300 arcade games, bowling) and much more.
Don’t forget about the dozens of Niagara Wineries. They will certainly keep you toasty. The Niagara Falls Courtyard by Marriott has their very own Niagara Wine Tour , which runs until the end of October.
It’s not too early to start thinking about New Year’s Eve. Ring in 2013 in Niagara Falls. Last year’s event is going to be hard to beat, as there were so many talented artists on one stage in Queen Victoria Park, overlooking Niagara Falls: Simple Plan, Our Lady Peace, The Sheepdogs, Keshia Chanté and Stephanie McIlroy. Stay tuned for 2013′s talent announcement.
Niagara Falls is the place to be this Winter.
