Follow the show with a stop at the brink of the Horseshoe Falls to view the nightly Falls Illumination. First illuminated in 1860 for a visit by the Price of Wales, Niagara Falls has been illuminated at night since the creation of the bi-national Niagara Falls Illumination Board. Beginning at dusk each evening, the three waterfalls are transformed using state-of-the-art LED technology into an incredible, multi-coloured water and light masterpiece.
Enjoy the new Inspired by Nature show, this new illumination display features colour palettes and movements inspired by nature, including the sunrise, aurora borealis, rainbow and sunset. The mighty American and Canadian Horseshoe Falls come alive every evening with this tribute to the natural beauty all around us.
As of November 14, 2020, the “Inspired by Nature” display became part of the regular nightly illumination of the Falls, with the five-minute lighting display playing through three times on the half hour, beginning at 7:30 each evening, with additional displays at 8:30, 9:30, 10:30 and 11:30pm.
