Hamilton and Niagara Regions have wonderful cities that dazzle not only for their interesting culture but also for the variety of events and festivals they offer, whether you enjoy them alone or in the company of family and friends. The month of February is loaded with these activities, which is why I want to share with you a selection of the most outstanding events in this blog post.
Niagara Falls Winter Festival of Lights
Let’s start this tour with The Ontario Power Generation Winter Festival of Lights, which transforms Niagara Falls into a palette of breathtaking colours with millions of sparkling lights and animated displays. This is Canada’s largest free outdoor light festival and is located along the Niagara Parkway, Dufferin Islands, and surrounding tourist districts. This event will be available until February 20th, you just can’t miss it!
Now we move to the city of Hamilton for The Hamilton Winterfest, where you can enjoy an endless number of activities such as an interactive LED bonfire, Woodland creatures brought to life in 3D, artistic miniature cities, glowing poems, glittering sequins, and so much more! All of this is performed by 20+ artists from across the country and around the world. This wonderful event is located in Jackson Square and will be available until February 20th.
Welland Family Day Celebration
On Family Day, the city of Welland welcomes you to join them at the Welland Main Arena for some fun on and off the ice. There will be a designated learn-to-skate area with skate aids and bumpers. And, you will be able to test your skills with hockey shooting accuracy and bubble hockey in the community room. There will be a craft creation with the Welland Museum, face painting, a magician and Shriner s Creek popcorn for sale. No doubt a great plan for Family Day!
St. Catharines Farmers Market
We finalize this tour in the beautiful city of St. Catherines, where this February all the farmers in the area will gather every Saturday for the St. Catharines Farmers Market. This event will be held downtown at 91 King Street, so there’s no excuse to miss out on enjoying the freshest, healthiest crops and supporting local commerce.
Without a doubt, the month of February is synonymous with entertainment and fun in the Ontario area. Don’t get left behind and enjoy all these events and festivals. We should work hard and play hard, right?
