Niagara Falls tourism leaders want to bring back Festival of Lights
From the Buffalo News:
The Festival of Lights used to draw thousands to downtown in Niagara Falls, N.Y., and to its convention center and Winter Garden.
Both the convention center and Winter Garden are long gone, and so is the Festival of Lights.
But in Niagara Falls, Ontario, the Winter Festival of Lights continues to grow and draw tourists. The Ontario festival says it attracts more than one million visitors each year.
Lisa Vitello, Tourism Advisory Board chairman, said Monday she traveled to Ontario’s festival earlier this month. She returned feeling bad about the loss of the festival in Niagara Falls, N.Y.
