Labour Day Niagara Falls

Must-see Labour Day events around Niagara Falls

Well here we are, at what most people under the age of 18 would call the end of Summer (we really do have over a month of awesome Summer weather ahead of us).

Getting the kids ready for school and preparing for a busy Fall? Why not have one last getaway before its time to hit the books and pack lunches?

There are plenty of things to do in Niagara Falls this coming Labour Day Weekend. Let’s start with Friday, September 4th. First, party on the Parkway with the exciting Coca-Cola sponsored concerts at the Illumination station, followed by treating the family to witnessing the Falls Fireworks at 10 pm.

From Friday, August 28th until Sunday, Sept 13th, all bands play in Queen Victoria Park from 7:15 pm to 10:00 pm as part of the Onguiaahra:Thunder of Waters Sound & Light Show.


Onguiaahra:Thunder of Waters Sound & Light Show

Located just across from the American Falls, a large pond fountain will be set up that will astonish the viewer with a magnificent series of lights and images that will dance with a musical symphony of sounds reflecting off of the spraying water in an ever-changing rainbow of colours.

There will be THREE shows nightly at these times: *8:15 pm *9:15 pm *10:15 pm

Here’s a teaser from last year’s showing of the event:

Even though Summer is coming to an end, Niagara Falls just started its best stretch of weather all season and Clifton Hill puts you at the center of it all. With many world-class attractions within walking distance, you can experience all the fun of our fascinating tourist area without having to venture far from the Falls.

Clifton Hill’s World Famous Street of Fun by the Falls! – offers the Niagara SkyWheel: Canada’s largest giant wheel, Queen Victoria Park, Casino Niagara, the Hornblower Niagara Cruises, plus over 100 restaurants, stores and entertainment venues.

A few blocks away, Greg Frewin has his award-winning “Imagine” Magic Show at 7:30pm Friday through Sunday. You’ll have plenty of time beforehand for dinner at Kelsey’s or Boston Pizza.
