The Winter Festival of Lights Niagara Falls Canada which officially opens on November 7, 2009 has launched a new website for what will be one of the most exciting winter Niagara Falls events seasons in many years. This year, the Winter Festival of Lights in Niagara Falls, Ontario introduces a robust events calendar as well as the stunning new Rink at the Brink ice skating experience right at the base of Niagara Falls.

In addition to comprehensive information about the three million Niagara Falls winter lights located throughout the Niagara Parks Winter Wonderland, the site features a special area devoted to the Rink at the Brink - the festival's newest attraction.

According to Winter Festival of Lights Chair, Joe Miszk, "We expect the Rink at the Brink will become an iconic wintertime destination similar to New York City's Rockefeller Center. It's one of those attractions that's so spectacular you have to experience it first-hand."

The new website offers a robust Niagara entertainment calendar of events for the 09-10 winter season, with everything from the Christmas Concert Series featuring Loretta Lynn, the Gatlin Brothers and Ronnie Prophet to seasonal shows like Jump, Jive & Jingle at Oh Canada, Eh?, Niagara Falls Comedy Fest and The Chronicles of Narnia at the Queen Street Theatre.
