Niagara Falls to be Illuminated in Tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

Niagara Falls, ON – The Niagara Falls Illumination Board will be illuminating both the Canadian Horseshoe and American Falls in royal blue each night from 10:30 p.m. to midnight, throughout the remainder of the 10-day mourning period in tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, which will conclude on September 19. 

Niagara Falls will join landmarks across Canada, such as the Senate of Canada Building and Peace Tower, in a coordinated illumination to create a powerful nationwide visual tribute to Her Majesty the Queen. The royal blue is inspired by the blue found in all the viceregal flags of Canada, a colour that unites the viceregal family. The royal blue hue also mimics the shade of the jewels worn by Her Majesty in her last official Canadian portrait. 

Niagara Falls holds many important connections to the royal family and Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The Queen herself visited Niagara Parks in 1951, months before she would ascend to the throne. With great sadness, the Niagara Falls Illumination Board expresses its sympathies with the members of the Royal Family as they mourn such a significant loss.
