Niagara Falls, ON – Power switches won’t be the only things flipping at this season’s opening ceremony for the Ontario Power Generation Winter Festival of Lights. Performers from the spectacular Zero Gravity Circus will electrify the crowd with dazzling acrobatics as the festival officially opens its 32nd season on Saturday, November 15 at Queen Victoria Park.
Acrobats from Zero Gravity Circus, a full-service production house and circus agency based in Toronto, will perform two shows — at 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. — showcasing feats of high-flying precision and aerial contortion with an awe-inspiring light display from the Ontario Power Generation Winter Festival of Lights serving as a backdrop.
“This year’s opening ceremony will be like nothing you’ve ever seen before,” says Brian Crow, Co-Chair of the Ontario Power Generation Winter Festival of Lights. “We want to ensure the opening ceremony reflects the
excitement and vivacity of the Festival of Lights while highlighting our dedication to rejuvenating the Festival in years to come.”
Following the circus performance, the Ontario Power Generation Winter Festival of Lights will have its official Flip of the Switch ceremony to illuminate millions of lights and spark off a fantastic fireworks display over the Falls.
Canada’s foremost illuminations festival runs from November 15 to January 12, featuring all new illuminations on Dufferin Islands and DMX Projection Lighting that will bring displays throughout the Festival to life by choreographing them to music.
