Tourism Ireland’s “Global Greening” meets Niagara Falls
In partnership with Tourism Ireland’s “Global Greening” campaign, Niagara Falls will be illuminated green for 15-minutes at the top of every hour from 7:30 p.m. to 2 a.m. on St. Patrick’s Day.

A Lucky Birthday
Along with St. Patrick’s Day festivities, there is another special reason to celebrate: the City of Niagara Falls is turning 132! On March 17, 1892, the villages of Niagara Falls and Suspension Bridge merged to form the City of Niagara Falls, New York.
