Holiday-inspired events and activities include the Rink at the Brink, among new Niagara Falls attractions; Santa Claus parade; concerts at Brock University, and theatre performances at venues like DuffleBag Theatre

Niagara entertainment is at its best during the holiday season. From the Winter Festival of Lights, which runs through January 4, 2010 and offers one of Canada’s foremost light displays, to an event calendar full of music concerts, theatre shows and Santa Claus sightings, Niagara Falls is more festive than ever.

The Candlelight Christmas Concert at Mount Carmel on November 22 welcomes the holiday season with Christmas music for the entire family. On November 28, from 11 am to 1pm, the jolly man himself arrives in Niagara Falls at the Santa Claus Parade which weaves its way through the city with bands, beautiful floats, community groups, mascots and fun for everyone. After the parade, visitors can take a brisk skate at the sensational new Rink at the Brink, opening on November 23 and sure to be a favourite among Niagara Falls attractions, before heading to Southminster United Church for a family-style turkey dinner and a seasonal concert in the sanctuary by the Treblaires.

There is no shortage of Niagara entertainment with the Blind Boys of Alabama performing selections from their Grammy award winning album Go Tell It on the Mountain at the Sean O’Sullivan Theatre at Brock University on December 2. The theatre welcomes tenor John McDermott for a celebration of Christmas music on December 5 and the Celtic influenced vocals of The Rankin Sisters offer a Maritime Christmas concert on December 9.

DuffleBag Theatre presents a hilarious off-the-wall version of Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer on December 6 where the audience gets to play the best parts and a family of four can attend for only $60. Santa’s Workshop is open December 12 at Peterson Community Workshop, another one of the many things to do in Niagara Falls this holiday season – including Santa and the elves, crafts, baking, raffles, artwork and kid’s activities.
