2016 FALLS FIREWORKS

Join us for the 22nd anniversary of Canada's longest-running fireworks series! From May 1st until October 31st, 2016, every Wednesday, Friday, Sunday and holidays at 10 p.m., enjoy a spectacular fireworks display in Queen Victoria Park. Come early on fireworks evenings to enjoy free concerts on Fridays & Sundays at 8 p.m. starting May 20th through September 5th.

Holidays: Canada Day July 1, Independence Day July 4, Civic Holiday August 1.

Travel tip: The fireworks at the  falls lasts for about eight minutes and it is very small compared to a typical 4th of July type display.   


FIREWORKS ARE DISPLAYED AT THE SENECA NIAGARA CASINO ON THURSDAY JUNE 30th 2016 @ 9:40 PM IN NIAGARA FALLS NEW YORK. Visit their page for more information.

There are fireworks over the Falls on July 4th but itís only a ten minute display. If you would like to see a real good old 4th of July fireworks display you can view them at one of three locations within a 5-20 minute drive from the Falls on the U.S. side of the border. Try Hyde Park (near Pine Ave, & Hyde Park Blvd), Niawanda Park in North Tonawanda or our favorite Academy Park in Lewiston NY. All shows start at dusk.


All dates and times subject to change and dependent upon weather and wind conditions.
