NIAGARA FALLS, ON -- Niagara Falls welcomes the winter season with Canada's largest illumination festival, the CAA Winter Niagara Festival of Lights. Running until January 31, 2011, the Niagara festival captures the magic of the holiday season turning Niagara Falls into a winter wonderland with over three million sparkling lights along a 5 km route. And on Friday nights in December, visitors can enjoy spectacular fireworks, including an extravaganza on New Year's Eve. Other unique Niagara Falls events taking place during the festival include a Santa's Village Candlelight Stroll and the popular TD Rink at the Brink.


Many Niagara Falls hotels feature winter deals to help visitors enjoy these seasonal events in comfort. From many hotels, visitors can easily bundle up and get to any number of events and attractions like the open-air, outdoor TD Rink at the Brink. Just a snowball's throw away from the Horseshoe Falls, TD Rink at the Brink offers breathtaking views and a magical outdoor ice skating experience. Also open in the winter is Journey Behind the Falls, a walkway behind the falls that offers spectacular views for the whole family.

Among other favourite Niagara Falls winter events is the annual Niagara Icewine Festival, January 14-30, 2011. For three weeks, this winter wonderland celebrates one of Canada's most cherished products, Ontario icewine. From the Twenty Valley Wine Winterfest (January 15-16) to the Niagara Icewine Village (January 22-23), Niagara wineries will be offering something for virtually everyone to enjoy the festival. On January 14, Fallsview Casino hosts a memorable evening of Niagara cuisine, live entertainment and over 30 Niagara wineries showcasing their VQA wines and icewines at the Red Hot and Ice Gala. Or on the weekend of January 29 and 30, the Discovery Pass Program is the gateway to six wine and food experiences at participating wineries.
