The Winter Festival of Lights is one of the reasons to travel to Niagara in the middle of the winter. The display along the River is great - as usual - but Dufferin Island just south of the power plant was an extraordinary drive.

We enjoyed seeing the light display. It is a pretty creative production - not huge but enough lights to keep the kids interested. We gave a donation at the end of the circle. It was worth it. Loved the animals - the wolves the most!
