School’s out and it’s the perfect time for family fun. Luckily, Niagara Parks has so much to see and do during March Break, the only question you’ll have left is, “What’s next?”
Here are just a few of the exciting things to see and do this March Break in Niagara:
Frozen Falls spectacular
The chilly winter temps are bringing out more than just scarves and mittens this year. Niagara Falls has partially frozen, creating a unique chance to see this breathtaking marvel encased in ice and snow. But don’t take our word for it, check out some of the images captured below.
Creatures of the night are a visitor favourite
Nocturnal: Creatures of the Night is still on at the Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory, where you’ll find over one dozen nocturnal animals on display, plus several animals available for hands-on learning with zoo experts.
Learn about how these exciting creatures live in the dark. Did you know that the African Emperor Scorpion actually glows under ultra-violet light? Their exoskeletons appear to be bright green! Check out this video for a sneak peak at just a few of the creatures you’ll find.
Nocturnal: Creatures of the Night is on until May 10 and is included with regular admission to the Butterfly Conservatory. Or save over 55% with the Niagara Falls Wonder Pass!
Step back in time at Table Rock Welcome Centre
Don your red coats and muskets for a unique photo opportunity next to the Horseshoe Falls. Niagara Parks Heritage interpreters will share stories of the history of Niagara Falls and the War of 1812, all in authentic costume!
Come relive history in Niagara Parks!

Spring is in the air at the Floral Showhouse
Despite the chilly temps outside, it’s always spring at the Floral Showhouse! Celebrate the annual spring display in this warm and tropical setting.
The Floral Showhouse features eight annual shows, so there’s always something new in bloom!
Niagara Falls goes green for St. Paddy’s Day
Every evening at dusk, Niagara Falls is lit in the colours of the rainbow, but on St. Patrick’s Day watch as the Falls is lit green in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day! And you can enjoy the show with a pint of Guinness at Elements on the Falls Restaurant.
Chef Elbert Wiersema has created a special St. Patrick’s Day feature that is sure to bring out the Irish in anyone. Enjoy an entree, dessert and coffee or tea for just $23.50 per person.
Elements on the Falls Restaurant is FeastON certified, featuring the freshest ingredients from local farms and a fantastic selection of world-class VQA wines from the vineyards of Niagara. Call (905) 354-3631 to reserve.
Don’t forget to try Chef’s latest mouth-watering creation, the Frozen Ice Wine Parfait! This Frozen Falls-themed dessert feature takes fresh vanilla-dipped apple slices that have been fried to a golden crisp, then drizzles Kittling Ridge ice wine brandy caramel sauce on top. Served over vanilla ice cream, this Niagara-inspired winter treat is the perfect finish!
