2021 NIAGARA FALLS ILLUMINATION SCHEDULE

Every evening beginning at dusk, Niagara Falls is illuminated in an array of colors. Recently, 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.
