    From Niagara This Week:

    While the 32nd annual Ontario Power Generation Winter Festival of Lights last year was regarded as a transitional year for the event, this year’s promises to build on that and establish a more modern festival.

    Lasers, 3D illuminations and projection lighting are the new signatures, including a new “Spirit of Niagara” presentation that will be illuminated on the walls of the Oakes Hotel Overlooking the Falls.

    “Hopefully we’ll create a body of work where the province sees us as a winter destination,” said John Lohuis, general manager of the Niagara Parks Commission and chair of WFOL’s board of directors.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    While the mighty mouse may be gone, the Ontario Power Generation Winter Festival of Lights has added turtle power to its upcoming season.

    The festival parted ways with Disney in 2013 after more than 20 years of partnering with them for light displays and various attractions including having Mickey and Minnie Mouse participate in the opening ceremonies.

    This season, organizers have partnered with Paramount Canada for a new display featuring the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

    The illuminated renditions of Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael will be set up at the top of Clifton Hill.

    There will also be a special screening of the latest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie at the Ripley’s Moving Theatre on Dec. 16, the day the summer movie will hit store shelves on Blu-Ray and DVD.

    “We are always seeking new and creative ways to expand the festival and this partnership brings a new element to the attraction,” said Brian Crow, co-chairman of the festival.

    The festival’s 32nd season runs from Nov. 15 to Jan. 12.
