Niagara Falls Will Flow Green This Weekend for St. Patrick’s Day
Niagara Falls is celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in its own way — by turning green. This Sunday, the falls will be illuminated after dark by green lights, as part of Tourism Ireland’s Global Greening campaign. Hundreds of LED lights, installed across various locations in the Niagara Gorge in Ontario, Canada, light up the falls year-round, but this weekend they will shine bright green in celebration of the holiday.
According to the Niagara Falls Illumination Board, on Sunday, March 17, from 7:00 PM to 2:00 AM, the falls will be illuminated for 15 minutes every hour.
If you can’t make it there, you can still experience the Global Greening elsewhere. The Sydney Opera House, Empire State Building, Christ the Redeemer Statue, London Eye, Colosseum, and Leaning Tower of Pisa will all glow green for the holiday. For a complete list, check out the Global Greening lineup.
The falls will also turn yellow and blue on March 21 for World Down Syndrome Day, blue on March 22 for World Water Day, and red on March 24 for World TB Day. On Earth Day, March 30, the falls will be dark from 8:30 PM to 9:30 PM.
