Grilled hamburgers, whipped desserts, cold beverages, record breaking temperatures, and big and bright fireworks spells United State’s most celebrated holiday, U.S. Independence Day also know as the Fourth of July. To help celebrate America’s Birthday with our friends over the Canadian- American border (Rainbow Bridge), Hornblower NIagara CruisesNiagara Falls will be featuring a big, bold and an ‘oh so’ colourful show in the sky this Friday night beginning at 10pm. The firework is part of Niagara Falls weekly summer fireworks shows. Visitors coming to the world-class tourism destination can expect to see the Falls light up along with fireworks on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.

If you are on holidays, visiting family or simply looking to spend a dollar on shopping at the Canadian Malls (by dollar we really mean a few), then be sure to relax onboard Hornblower Niagara Cruises brand new evening cruises. The colourful and lively cruises is the perfect way to see, hear and experience the Falls and its natural beauty including the breath-taking and jaw-dropping night show. The bonus? The on board fully-licensed bar features local and international wines and beers as well as sweet and salty mouth-watering snacks. If you are looking to keep dry then we have the perfect spot for you. Standing behind our floor-to-ceiling glass walls is an ideal way to see the falls while keeping dry. Visitors travelling to Niagara Falls for the first time can also purchase their tickets online in advance to save and avoid the lines. If you are an adventurer then be sure to pull out your camera on the highest point on the boat on our 360-unobstructed viewing platform to experience the wide view of the magic in the sky.  

Skip the sparklers and add Hornblower Niagara Cruises glow wand to your experience on board the evening cruise. The popular item lights up in different colours and sets to different light paces. The glow wand along with a number of conveniently travel retail items can be purchased under the Visitor Pavilion tent at the Mist Gear Retail.

Who doesn’t like dancing and singing along to top hits, cooling down with the refreshing mist, while enjoying a tasty glass or two of Niagara favourite wines.
