NIAGARA FALLS, ON -- (Marketwire) -- 12/17/12 -- Niagara Falls is spectacular year-round, but every winter the World Wonder transforms during the Niagara Falls Winter Festival of Lights (WFOL), taking place just minutes from Courtyard Niagara Falls, a newly renovated hotel in Niagara Falls, Canada.
For 30 years the festival has brought holiday magic to the area around this Niagara Falls hotel, and this year the world-renowned festival is bigger and better than ever. More than 3 million sparkling lights cover a route of more than 3 miles, which includes the Skylon Tower, referred to by locals as "Niagara's largest Christmas tree." While past years have seen the tower strung with lights, this year it will be illuminated with 12 special projectors and three image projectors, which will project images on the underside pod of the tower. Don't miss the special light show taking place every night until the end of the WFOL, January 31, 2013.
