Spend a One-of-a-kind Thanksgiving Weekend In Niagara


Spend a One-of-a-kind Thanksgiving Weekend In Niagara

NIAGARA FALLS, ON There is much to be thankful for in Niagara Falls. Finally, the hot muggy days and large summer crowds have been replaced with crisp sweater-weather, vivid sunsets and spectacular autumn colours.

Thanksgiving is the perfect Niagara weekend! Visitors can still enjoy all their favourite area sites and attractions, without the crowds.

Whether you prefer to stroll through one of Niagara’s colourful parks … enjoy the dazzle and excitement of Clifton Hill, or take in the natural wonder of the Horseshoe and American Falls, you won’t be disappointed.

Niagara’s countryside is bursting with colour … with niagara fruit farmers harvesting what promises to be a bountiful crop … the morning grass is glistening with dew … and the air is full of a fruity freshness.

Not to mention, there is a ton of things to do!

Attraction seekers can still get the “Clifton Hill FUN PASS” – which gets you into FIVE of Niagara’s most popular attractions: The 175-foot tall Niagara SkyWheel, Movieland Wax Museum, Ghost Blaster Dark Ride, XD Theater, and Dinosaur Adventure or Galaxy Golf. Click here

The Balls Falls Thanksgiving Festival in Vineland is the single biggest event for Niagara on Thanksgiving weekend. 

The 39th Annual  Festival runs Friday, Oct. 11th to Monday, Oct. 14th, 10 am to 5 pm, features over 130 selected artisans displaying and selling their creative wares such as pottery, paintings, jewelry, lawn ornaments and clothing.  Daily live entertainment, children’s activities and numerous heritage displays will keep visitors engaged.

The Festival has become a long-standing, favourite tradition for both families and visitors who come from far and wide to experience the Ball’s Falls annual festival and its natural setting. In addition to the arts, crafts and wares, you can enjoy the incredible beauty of this 19th Century hamlet, set amid the majestic Niagara Escarpment and Twenty Valley eco-system. The event is a major fundraiser for the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority (NPCA), with revenues from admission directed to a number of NPCA’s conservation programs.
