Niagara Falls to get amazing new light show

Niagara Falls, Ontario is just a short drive away from Toronto. But if you head down the QEW at this time of year, you'll be greeted by an epic holiday light show as well as the usual crowds at the casino and on Clifton Hill.

But starting this Thursday, the Falls themselves are going to get even more exciting. That's because they're getting new LED lights, which will make the Falls much brighter than the previous xenon spotlights, which had difficulty cutting through the mist.

This upgrade cost $4 million and is supposed to transform the Falls into a "world-renowned multi-coloured water and light masterpiece." With a palette of 1,800 colour combinations - thanks to the LED lights - Canada's most famous waterfall should look pretty spectacular when set aglow.

This new lighting system will be unveiled on Thursday, December 1 at 6:10 p.m. And if you're looking to do more than just stare at the Falls, there's plenty to do in Niagara as well as in Niagara-on-the-Lake.
