The light displays are ever changing at the Winter Festival of Lights. The Disney attractions grow in number as new characters visit Niagara Falls. New animals of today and yesterday grace the Dufferin Islands. The Twas the Night Before Christmas display is one of the newest additions and looks to be a permanent fixture.

The Canadian Flag/American Flag light show is new and commemorates the friendship of the two neighbouring nations. If you're at the Festival of Lights, then why not also visit the city of Niagara Falls for new light displays and winter fun when you book Canada lodges. Lundy’s Lane turns into Candy Cane Lane and the town’s Christmas tree is alight in City Hall Centennial Square.
