As mentioned, “on the occasion of the 210th Anniversary of the Independence of the Republic of Paraguay, the Embassy of Paraguay in Canada is pleased to invite you to see, for the first time, the live lighting of Niagara Falls with the colors of the National Flag of Paraguay.”

The colors of the tricolor will illuminate the natural wonder:
