The weather is changing and as we wait for the official start of spring this weekend, Niagara Falls is about to get green!

In an email and press release we received this week, officials in Niagara Falls say The Niagara Falls Illumination Board will be illuminating both the Canadian Horseshoe and American Falls in green for 15-minutes at the top each hour, beginning at 8:00pm celebration of St. Patrick’s Day.

This is not only to celebrate what is possibly the most popular day on both sides each spring, it is also a great way to remind us about the importance of conservation.

The illumination is carried out each year on March 17th as part of Tourism Ireland’s “Global Greening” initiative which sees hundreds of iconic landmarks from around the world lit in green to mark the occasion.

When was the last time you and your family took a tour of Niagara Falls? It is one of the 7 Wonders of the World and it's right here in our backyard. When we were kids, it was an entire day activity for us. Just walking around and seeing the powerful falls and rapids is a thrill!

COVID has changed so many things and even though we can't travel back and forth to Canada, we can still enjoy some fresh air and the view from the American side! Happy St. Patrick's Day!
