Niagara Falls Canada Day and
Independence Day Long Weekend
Niagara Falls Activities for Canada Day and Independence Day Long Weekend
The first official long weekend of the summer!
This coming weekend Canada and the United States of America, two great nations, friends and neighbors or neighbours (depending on which side of the mighty Niagara you call home!) are joining together to commemorate the formation of their great countries!
Do you Like Fireworks? This weekend Niagara Falls will detonate loads of them!
July 1st Monday Night at 10 P.M.
Fired from the base of the Niagara gorge, directly across from the American Falls, a spectacular pyrotechnic display will kick off the weekend celebrations in style! To get the best view, be sure to watch from the bottom of Clifton Hill. (Locals secret). These spectacular Canada Day fireworks are provided free for your viewing pleasure! Don’t forget free Coca-Cola sponsored concerts at 8:00 pm! This year features the sounds of “Electric Blonde”. The band’s lead singer Lynzie Kent is the former lead singer of the Juno nominated “God Made Me Funky” and was recently nominated (2012) by Now Magazine as one of Toronto’s best female vocalists.

The SkyWheel is also one of 5 great attractions included on the Clifton Hill FUN PASS, all for only $25.95. It is the best value for attractions in Niagara Falls.
Niagara’s fireworks are a great way to kick off an amazing night on Clifton Hill’s World Famous Street of Fun by the Falls! After the fireworks, be sure to stop by the Great Canadian Midway on your way up ‘The Hill’ and enjoy the challenge of over 300 interactive games! Hungry? A late night snack at Boston Pizza or Kelsey’s Bar & Grill might be in order. Both have a great selection of appetizers and entrées perfect for sharing!
Looking to enjoy some Bowling, Billiards and maybe a Beer? Try Strike Rock and Bowl’s 25,000 square foot entertainment complex; the centerpiece of Niagara’s exciting Nightlife on Clifton Hill.
