    There’ll be a prehistoric addition to this year’s Ontario Power Generation Winter Festival of Lights.

    Among the new additions to the 34th edition of the festival will be a 10-foot-tall 3D woolly mammoth as part of the Canadian wildlife displays at Dufferin Islands…

    The expanded eight-kilometre illumination route runs along the Niagara Parkway as well as the surrounding districts of Fallsview Boulevard, Victoria Centre, Clifton Hill and Lundy’s Lane.
    “For over three decades now, countless local residents and businesses have come together to support and promote what we feel is the best winter festival celebration anywhere,” Niagara Parks Commission chairwoman Janice Thomson said Thursday at a press conference at the Floral Showhouse.

    The provincial agency this year invested $300,000 on lighting, programming and infrastructure improvements within Queen Victoria Park.
