Festival lights up Niagara
From the Niagara Falls Review:
With the flick of a switch, the Niagara Parkway erupted with about three million lights illuminating more than 120 seasonal displays.
The 27th annual Winter Festival of Lights, which attracts more than one million visitors each year, officially got underway this past weekend with performances ranging from magical to soulful.
Mother Nature, however, provided anything but wintery weather for the roughly 6,000 people who gathered at Queen Victoria Park Saturday to watch Disney divas Minnie Mouse and Daisy Duck, the Festival of Lights Choir, Niagara Star Singers and A Cappella Niagara.
Cool, but comfortable, temperatures provided the perfect backdrop for performances by magician Greg Frewin and the cast from the Oh Canada Eh! Dinner Show, which preceded the major attraction of the evening as Disney’s Mickey Mouse and galpal Minnie flipped the switch to sparkle the parkway.
Fireworks shot off in the gorge capped off the show.
