Niagara Falls has been selected as one of the Top 12 locations for New Year’s Eve celebrations. Niagara is noted on the list that includes Sydney, New York, Paris, Hong Kong, and London for the most breathtaking places to be as midnight strikes.
An annual tradition, Niagara Falls welcomes in the New Year with Canada’s largest free New Year’s Celebration with a free concert and spectacular fireworks display at the Falls. Each year, the free concert draws more than 40,000 visitors to the brink of the Falls to enjoy live music from big name artists and a dramatic fireworks show that lights up the sky above Niagara Falls.
This year is no exception with an outstanding concert lineup that includes Simple Plan, Our Lady Peace, The Sheepdogs, Keshia Chante, and rising star Stephanie McIlroy.
If your plans reach beyond the concert, then ring in 2012 in Niagara Falls at the Falls Avenue Resort. From Fallsview Gala Packages, a spectacular Fallsview dinner with reservations at the Rainbow Room by Massimo Capra or a Fallsview Indoor Waterpark Package, Niagara Falls and the Falls Avenue Resort are like nowhere else for New Year’s Eve.
Traditional noisemakers will be replaced by an electronic techno beat as an indoor dance party featuring world-class DJs helps revelers ring in New Year’s Eve in Niagara Falls.
Dubbed Golden New Year’s Eve 2012, the eight-hour dance fest will run from 8 p.m to 4 a.m. at the Scotiabank Convention Centre, featuring well-known DJs Avicii and Steve Aoki, Niagara’s own Christina Cruise and Manzone & Strong from Toronto.
Unlike the free, family-oriented outdoor concert and festivities that will take place at Queen Victoria Park on New Year’s Eve, the DJ dance party is for people who are 19 years of age and older. Admission starts at $75.
Featuring more than 1,200 rooms in three hotels connected to Canada’s largest one-stop entertainment complex, the Falls Avenue Resort has suites and packages to suit all visitors celebrating New Year’s Eve in Niagara.
