The Ontario Power Generation Winter Festival of Lights is one of the premier illumination festivals in North America. Our signature Illumination Route extends eight kilometres through the stunningly beautiful Niagara Parkway, through Dufferin Islands and into surrounding tourist districts. The displays along the Niagara Parkway represent the largest section of the WFOL illumination route and host many of the Festival’s iconic displays.
At the bottom of Clifton Hill is an area known as Grandview, during the OPG Winter Festival of Lights this area features decorative lighting including spiral trees at Oakes Garden Theatre and trees adorn with warm white lighting and dangling strands to resemble trees with Spanish Moss. Also at Grandview visitors are invited to enjoy Loop, an interactive illumination, sit down inside this display and activate the mechanism that causes beautiful images to come to life in fairytales.
Queen Victoria Park
Moving towards the Falls, visitors can view the Festival’s iconic Zimmerman Fountain, the Niagara Parks Deer Pond and the illuminated Niagara Parks Police Building with Angels.
Queen Victoria Park is beautifully illuminated with a forest of tree-shaped displays in various colours. Behind these trees white blinking lights are spread across the moraine which resemble sparkling stars in the night sky.
This winter the Ontario Power Generation Winter Festival of Lights will be hosting new Light Art exhibits including these pieces from Amsterdam’s Light Art Collection: Absorbed by Light, Run Beyond, Light A Wish, Talking Heads, C/C & Bridge of the Rainbow.
Also visitors can enjoy and Light Art displays that were created by local artists: Lorraine & Susan, Play, Music to Light & Two Hearts.
