With so much going on in Niagara Falls during the Ontario Power Generation Winter Festival of Lights, it’s sometimes easy to forget that it is first and foremost an illumination festival.  In fact, it is one of the premier illumination festivals in North America with a 5km Illumination route that travels along the stunningly beautiful Niagara Parkway, through the Niagara Parks Winter Wonderland, Dufferin Islands as well as in the adjacent tourist districts of Niagara Falls.

You’ll also notice the world’s largest illuminated Canadian-American Flag, at three-stories tall it  morphs between the Canadian and American flags, in celebration of the nearly 200 years of uninterrupted peace between our two great nations.  Other displays include the Zimmerman Fountain display, at two-stories high and over 40 feet wide, its animation gives the effect of a cascading waterfall in brilliant blue and white LED lights; and, of course, a display dedicated to the Festival’s lovable characters, The Misty Kids®.
