The Ontario Power Generation Winter Festival of Lights invites you to join us as we kick-off our 32nd season on Saturday, November 15th. Opening Ceremonies will take place in Queen Victoria Park (Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada) where Murray Street meets the Niagara Parkway just steps from the Falls.
The Festival will officially launch outdoors with two spectacular shows, the evening will include greetings from local dignitaries, spectacular on-stage cirque performances and will also feature our official Lighting Ceremony.
New this year Opening Ceremonies will take place on a circular stage set up in the centre of Queen Victoria Park. The on-stage show will feature cirque performers including an aerial hoop artist suspended above the ground showcasing feats of exacting high-flying precision & aerial contortion, completing the transformation of a modest suspended hoop into a bewitching instrument of acrobatic prowess. The cirque performance will conclude with highly skilled fire masters who will put on stunning demonstrations of immaculate control & brilliant fiery artistry including: fire poi spinning, fire torches, single & double fire staff. The artists complex tricks will weave illuminated patterns of fire to hypnotic effect, don’t forget to bring your camera! This high energy, high impact performance will delight both the young, and young at heart!
Following the cirque performance we will have our official Flip of the Switch ceremony will illuminate millions of lights and spark off a fantastic fireworks display over the Falls.
For those who miss the 6 pm show we will do it all again at 7 pm complete with fireworks but without the flip of the switch. After all once we have all the lights on we don’t want to shut them off again so soon!
