The coldest months in Niagara Falls are November through March. Winter in Niagara is wonderful, you have to see Niagara Falls in their most awesome splendor, framed by a blanket of snow and gleaming ice covered surroundings. 
Lighting the Falls to allow visitors to enjoy the beauty of the mighty Niagara even at night, was first attempted more than 140 years ago. In 1860, a spectacular illumination of the Falls celebrated a visit by the Prince of Wales. Illumination of the Falls using electricity first occurred in January 1879, during a visit by the Marquis of Lorne, Governor-General of Canada and his wife Princess Louise. The lights had an illumination power of 32,000 candles, just a fraction of the intensity used today. The Falls are illuminated nightly until at least 10 p.m. January through April and until midnight the rest of the year.
