FAQ’s Regarding the Opening Festivities of the Winter Festival of Lights


The Ontario Power Generation Winter Festival of Lights is launching its 31st season tomorrow on November 9th, 2013! The opening ceremonies will get underway at 2:00pm at Queen Victoria Park along the Niagara Parkway.

The Winter Festival of Lights has released some Frequently Asked Questions pertaining to this event in which I will share, but there is also further questions answered on their website by clicking here.

FAQ #1: Where can I park?

There is plenty of parking available, including across from the Table Rock Welcome Centre , the Skylon Tower and adjacent to the Skylon Tower in the large grassy area, right up to the Comfort Inn Clifton Hill (just do not park in the first row of the hotel parking as that is reserved for hotel guests). Tourists can take advantage of the WEGO bus system which travels to and from various tourist districts into the Niagara Parks. Visit www.wegoniagarafalls.com for details and real-time scheduling.

FAQ #2: Is there seating available for the show?

There is seating for 1000 people for both the Korean War Veterans Tribute Ceremony and the Flip the Switch Lighting Ceremony. There will also be some seating for the cooking demonstrations and other activities. You may also bring your own lawn chairs.

FAQ #3: Is there a cost to attend?

No, the Opening Festivities is a free event! There are certain activities (i.e. lantern making) that DO have a small fee associated with them. The Winter Festival of Lights will also be collecting food donations on behalf of Project Share.

FAQ #4: What time should I show up at?

The day’s activities will begin at 2:00pm with the Korean War Veterans Tribute Ceremony. Afterwards, there will be an abundance of activities throughout the day to keep the family occupied and entertained! The fireworks extravaganza will take place at 7:45pm, so it is best to arrive in plenty of time to ensure a good spot!

For further information on scheduling throughout the day please visit www.wfol.com or click here for a previous blog post listing this information.

FAQ #5: What should I bring?

Bring your family and friends, your camera and warm clothing!! Please do not bring outside food or drinks as they are not allowed on-site.

FAQ #6: Are there washrooms available?

Yes, there are two options for washroom facilities — those located on-site and those located at Tim Horton’s (located on the south side (across from Murray Street) adjacent to Queen Victoria Park.
