Remembrance Day in Niagara Falls

Remembrance Day in Niagara Falls


Remembrance Day in Niagara Falls is full of many events to remember the members of the armed forces who have died in the line of duty since World War I.

Remembrance Day is observed on November 11th to recall the end of hostilities of World War I on that date in 1918. Hostilities formally ended “at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month”. World War I officially ended with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles on June 28th, 1919. The red remembrance poppy has become a familiar emblem of Remembrance Day due to the poem “In Flanders Fields”. These poppies bloomed across some of the worst battlefields of Flanders in World War I, their brilliant red colour an appropriate symbol for the blood spilled in the war.

There are a number of ceremonies taking place for Remembrance Day in Niagara Falls at the Gale Centre located at 4171 Fourth Avenue at 11:00 am on November 11th, 2014. Here is a video from the 2011 Remembrance Day event held at the same arena:
