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.

While you don't want to miss what Canoe.ca calls one of the Top 10 winter festivals in Canada, this hotel in Niagara Falls, Ontario is also the ideal location for your New Year's plans, putting you just a short walk or cab ride away from the biggest events. Queen Victoria Park will host Grammy Award-winning artist Nelly Furtado, who will ring in the New Year with an outdoor concert. Joining her will be the JUNO Award-winning rock group Hedley and the electro-pop trio Dragonette. Furtado will take the stage with a backdrop of the magnificent falls, and through the night fireworks will light up the sky in an unforgettable display. Food and beverages will be available at the event, as well as a licensed area for adults.
If you're looking for another New Year's option close to this hotel near Niagara Falls, electronic music superstar Deadmau5 will hold court at Scotiabank Convention Centre. Doors open at 9pm, but Deadmau5 will go on at midnight and play into the early hours of the morning, making this a great afterparty for those who aren't ready to call it a night after the Queen Victoria Park concert.
