In addition, the Niagara Falls Illumination Board offers the added spectacle of custom-colored illuminations for brief periods to commemorate significant dates in support of charitable causes. Don't miss the chance to witness this remarkable display of natural beauty illuminated in all its glory.

For nearly a century, The Niagara Falls Illumination Board has financed and overseen the incredible "Illumination of the Falls." In 2016, following almost two decades after the last major investment in fall lighting, the existing Xenon lights were replaced with state-of-the-art LED lighting technology. These new lights not only provide more than twice the previous lighting levels but also offer programmable lighting and a broader spectrum of colors.

Additionally, they fill gaps in the lighting to produce a more uniform and consistent effect, making Niagara Falls even more breathtaking for visitors who come to see the Illumination Tower and Queen Victoria Park Stage from all corners of the globe!
