Niagara Falls planning unreal holiday lights festival this year

Canada's largest lights festival is coming back to Niagara Falls. 

More than one million people from around the world come each year to see more than three million lights displayed throughout the tourist-heavy city during its annual Winter Festival of Lights.

"The signature 8km long route travels through the beautiful landscapes of the Niagara Parks, Dufferin Islands and surrounding tourist districts to transform the city into a winter wonderland," reads the Niagara Falls Tourism website.

A number of events are also slated to coincide with the lights, including 25 fireworks shows and the Sparkle Lighting Awards.

The 2019 festival kicks off November 16, and will run until January 12 of 2020.

Admission is free, but donations are gratefully accepted.
