Niagara Falls Illumination & Fireworks Schedule

From day to night, see Niagara Falls come alive with seasonal fireworks and a colorful illuminations display year-round.

Every evening beginning at dusk, Niagara Falls is illuminated in an array of colors. In 2016, the Niagara Falls Illumination Board launched an ambitious project to replace Xenon lights with new LED technology, increasing both the display’s brightness and energy efficiency. The Niagara Falls Illumination Board offers special color illuminations for charitable and not-for-profit organizations only; all requests must be submitted online.
