Illumination of Niagara Falls
Make time to see Niagara Falls at night as well as during the day. The American, Bridal Veil and Horseshoe Falls offer spectacular night views. All 3 Falls are illuminated with colorful lights at night.
Illumination of the Falls begins at sunset and continues until 1 or 2 AM, depending on the time of year.
Many nights the colors of Niagara Falls show a special color theme to reflect a holiday or special cause.
