A Niagara Vacation for the Holiday Break Entertains with the Winter Festival of Lights, New Year's Eve Niagara Falls and More

Share Article

Niagara getaway packages offer ideal holiday excursions for families and couples.

Three million lights and fantastic fireworks displays are only the beginning of a winter Niagara vacation. The holiday break has come and along with it has arrived a wonderland of Niagara events to charm and cheer during this spectacular season. From the Winter Festival of Light to New Year's Eve Niagara Falls, there's truly no place like Niagara for the holidays.

Through January 7, 2008, the Winter Festival of Light celebrates its 25th anniversary with the most brilliant show ever at the Niagara Parks Winter Wonderland. Perhaps an equally luminous tradition, Niagara Falls fireworks shows happen every Friday through December 21 and then every night from December 26, 2007-January 6, 2008. Many romantic getaway packages at Niagara Falls hotels give couples a room with a view--a warm, front row seat for the show.

A Niagara vacation at New Year's is a treasured memory and New Year's Eve Niagara Falls will only enhance the experience. For December 31, 2007, Queen Victoria Park is the setting for a free concert -- featuring Dennis DeYoung (founding member of Styx), Loverboy and Honeymoon Suite -- as well as two magnificent fireworks displays, and food and drink provided by Niagara Falls restaurants and vendors. New Year's Eve Niagara entertainment starts at 8 p.m. with fireworks at 9 p.m. and midnight.

Niagara getaway packages for a winter vacation abound. For ways to entertain children, Niagara Falls family resorts and water park hotels feature year-round water park access, plenty of resort activities and winter wonderland themes. A terrific family treat in addition to the Winter Festival of Lights is a production of Beauty & the Beast that runs at The Niagara Center for the Performing Arts Theater through January 1, 2008. For couples, New Year's packages and romantic retreats are popular at Niagara Falls hotels -- many of which offer up entertainment at Niagara Fallsview Casino; rooms and suites with views of Fireworks Over the Falls; and dinner and dance packages to help ring in 2008 with style.

For those who aren't able to visit Niagara this holiday season, the Niagara Falls Photo Contest, in conjunction with the Winter Festival of Lights, offers a terrific way to reminisce about a Niagara winter vacation from the comfort of home. Photo contest information is available on the Niagara Falls Tourism website.
