Toronto: The experience of viewing Niagara Falls in night gets better and more spectacular for the tourists flocking to the attraction as the Niagara Falls Illumination Board this month unveiled the new falls illumination system in Niagara Parks.
The Canadian Horseshoe and American Falls will now be illuminated every evening with energy-efficient LED lights, making the Falls much brighter than the previous xenon spotlights, which had difficulty cutting through the mist.
This $4 million dollar upgrade, financed by the bi-national Niagara Falls Illumination Board, will offer endless color combinations and give visitors an entirely new way to experience Niagara Falls at night, says an official of The Niagara Parks Commission.
“I always love visiting Niagara Falls. But this time it is even more magical with this new lighting,” says Radha Bose, a tourist from Bramption, Ontario.
The incredible power and beauty of Niagara Falls at Ontario’s Niagara Parks draws millions of tourists yearlong. Here you can get as close as you can to the thundering water at Journey Behind the Falls and White Water Walk, then dine with a panoramic view at Elements on the Falls Restaurant.
Niagara Falls combines three waterfalls that straddle the Canada-USA border between the province of Ontario and the state of New York. They form the southern end of the Niagara Gorge.
Located on the Niagara River, which drains Lake Erie into Lake Ontario, the falls form the highest flow rate of any waterfall in the world that has a vertical drop of more than 165 feet.
