How To Spend Your Holidays in the Niagara Region

Hey Badgers! I know that a large population of Brock students are from the Niagara region, so if you’re stumped on which events to check out close to home, here are some ideas!

Santa Claus Parade – Niagara On The Lake

If you really want to get into the Holiday spirit, you have to check out one of the Ontario’s Santa Claus Parades. There’s one happening on Dec. 9, 2017 in the old historic town of Niagara-on-the-lake, starting at 11 am! Trust me, you don’t want to miss it!

Ontario Power Generation’s Winter Festival of Lights

This is an awesome attraction that occurs every year around this time. There are spectacular light shows such as the Fallsview Sound and Light Show, and over 2 million lights displayed along the Niagara Parkway, Dufferin Islands and throughout Niagara Falls!
