Niagara Falls Canada Day

Niagara Falls Canada Day Long Weekend


Niagara Falls Canada Day Weekend

Join us for Niagara Falls Canada Day weekend to celebrate Canada’s birthday on the first weekend of the summer! It’s not necessarily a “long weekend” this year, as Canada Day falls on a Tuesday — but that’s not going to stop a lot of people from taking the Monday off and making it a 4 day long weekend!

Niagara Falls, Canada is the “place to be” for one of the biggest annual birthday celebrations on Tuesday, July 1st, 2014. It’s a giant celebration throughout Niagara’s tourist and entertainment areas.

The crowds start to gather in Downtown Niagara Falls at Queen Street for the city’s official Canada Day Parade. Then followed by multiple concerts and performances in the evening. Plus our world-famous Niagara Falls fireworks show that you simply don’t want to miss!

We will be buzzing with activity, as Canadians from across the country flock to the area to celebrate Canada’s 147th birthday in style!

Niagara Summer of Thrills!

Niagara Falls Canada Day

This is a FREE brand new, exciting event for Niagara Falls that takes place from June 27th to September 1st, 2014! With the exception of Wednesday’s and Thursday’s, these live stunt shows run for 10 minutes, during 4 shows a day: 2:00 pm and 6:00 pm for “Wheel of Fate” on top of the Imperial Hotel — a 10 storey building that has the 29-year old star of the show (named Enrique Valencia) over 100 feet in the air aboard a revolving wheel, in which he will perform stunts inside, as well as ON TOP the wheel.

At 4:00 pm and 8:00 pm he will then take his act to a highwire that is 30 metres high in the sky, strung between the Days Inn on Victoria Avenue and a billboard sign — suspended beneath a motorcycle. This stunt is entitled “Highwire Sky Cycle”.

Prior to each and every show, fire and chainsaw juggler will entertain the crowd for approximately 20 minutes.

Both of these stunts are located on Victoria Avenue, just a hop away from where the street meets with Clifton Hill. This show will be going on for Niagara Falls Canada Day, so have a look at this Youtube video I shot of the first show of the “Wheel of Fate” on June 27th:
