Two cities, two countries, and a night of collaborative celebration. The Canadian side of Niagara Falls lends a friendly hand to their neighbors on the American side, joining together to celebrate the American Independence Day on July Fourth.
The Falls are lit with rotating colors, and crowds gather a Luna Island, Observation Tower, Prospect Point and Terripin Point for viewing the show.
The Fourth of July fireworks display lasts for more than ten minutes, and can be seen from anywhere in the Niagara Falls State Park.
Fireworks are a specialty of Niagara Falls, and are presented each weekend on Friday and Sunday nights throughout the summer tourist season, along with a Coca Cola Concert Series.
The longer-lasting displays, however, are reserved as special presentations for holidays like the American Independence Day and the Canadian Victoria Day.
Take the day picnicking, hiking, biking or walking to explore the legendary falls, whirlpool, rapids and Niagara Escarpment.
