The Winter Festival of Lights has become a massive occasion for Niagara Falls. One of the newest additions to the festival itinerary is the ‘Deck the Falls’ Holiday Walking Tour, scheduled across the first two weekends in December 2016 (Dec 2–4 and 9–11).
The Deck the Falls tour is a city-wide activity, with twelve participating venues connected by wither walking trails or WEGO bus routes (all these venues have official booklets to guide your travels).
Every venue has exclusive activities, games and competitions. Some listings include Marriott Fallsview’s wine and food pairings, virtual reality experiences at Scotiabank, a laser light show at the Comfort Inn, and entry to ride to the top of Skylon Tower to see the town and the falls from its 360˚ observation deck.
Deck the Falls at Marriott on the Falls
One other venue taking part in Deck the Falls is Marriott on the Falls. The holiday themed lobby is a sight to see, and during the designated Deck the Falls weekends the hotel will entertain guests with acoustic musical entertainment. There’s also a unique food treat available for : an apple pie on a stick, made with mulled apple cider and baked in the shape of a maple leaf. As the Niagara Falls Deck the Falls is an evening-slot activity, the events and offers running from 5pm until 10pm across those respective weekends, the music and warm food are a great combination.
There are also general features outside the specific venues. The ticket provides Niagara Falls WEGO bus credit and a daily pass for the Incline Railway that provides quick access to Table Rock. Life size games are set up for the tour – checkers, Lite Brite, Jenga and so on. And complementary mittens are part of the package – it’s a winter night, after all.
