show across the Horseshoe and American Falls. These lights are part of a tradition stretching as far back as 1860, when 200 quicklime-powered lamps lit up the gorge in celebration of a visit from the Prince of Wales. On most Fridays, the lights are accompanied by a spectacular fireworks display, visible from many of the fantastic restaurants and clubs around the Falls' edge.

The illumination of the Falls is gorgeous. Even though my children were tired as can be after a long day, they wanted to stay up and watch the illumination. And it did not disappoint

The falls are beautiful with or without lights, but seen them lit up at night it's very nice!

The falls look amazing at night with all the colors changing. Puts a whole different twist on an already amazing view which must be seen from the Canadian side. The lights also originate on the Canadian side as well. They rotate and change every few minutes.

It's nice to take a stroll to see the falls lit up at night. especially after a romantic dinner. When the flowing waters are lit up pink and blue it looks like a moving sculpture.

The Illumination of The Falls is beautiful. Plus, the light gave us lots of neat creative photography opportunities.

Such a beatiful site at night. Must get there early to find a good seat or if your hotel overlooks the niagra falls at the right height.....lucky you. Toast with a glass of champagne with your love one, or set up some goodies with the kids and have a great time. The view is just AWESOME. We always stay on the Canadian side next to the falls as close as possible.

This is kind of hokey but nonetheless is still worth seeing. The major problem on the Canadian side can be the traffic and finding a place to park. Make a day of it and just walk around and do some of the tourist stuff.
