Celebrating the Holidays at Niagara on the Lake

The weather has changed and cool fall days are now just a distant memory. As the days get shorter and the weather gets colder, one can’t help but feel that Christmas and all of its grandeur is just around the corner. In Ontario, there may be no better place to ring in the holiday cheer and festivities than at Niagara on the Lake. As the premier real estate agents in Niagara on the Lake, we would like to fill you in on some of the great holiday events that will be taking place this holiday season.

Sights and Lights

Niagara on the Lake is famous for its amazing Christmas light displays and its ability to bring the Christmas magic to life. Make sure to take your time and enjoy a stroll around to enjoy some of the most breathtaking light displays a town can offer. While you are strolling around the town center or through some of its more picturesque neighbourhoods, be sure to stop in and visit some of the vendors who are responsible for turning Niagara on the Lake into this winter wonderland.

One such vendor is the oldest Canadian year-round Christmas vendor. The “Just Christmas” emporium has been in operation for over 30 years and offers over 5,000 different and unique Christmas items. Their most popular item is their personalized glass Christmas balls. Each one is hand painted and is as unique as you are. So make sure to stop by and marvel at everything Christmas in this unique store.

Another must see in the region is the CAA Festival of Lights. This festival runs along the Niagara Parkway and into Niagara Falls. With over 3 million lights and over 5 kilometers of holiday displays, this is a must see holiday tradition. Fireworks accompany this dazzling light festival to help take the Festival of Lights to a whole other level. The festival of lights runs until January 31st, so make sure to fit it somewhere into your busy holiday schedule.


Some of the wineries in the region also play host to some great holiday festivities. Stocking Days is a great event that includes all of the wineries in the region. Stocking Days allows a unique opportunity to sample and purchase some of the best wine the region has to offer. These bottles of wine make great Christmas gifts or can become a new Christmas tradition in your household.  Whatever you choose, you cannot go wrong with local Niagara on the Lake wine. Please visit their website for more information and which dates your favourite winery is hosting their holiday events.

These are just a few of the many festivals and events that are taking place at Niagara on the Lake. Be sure to include Niagara Homes on your holiday itinerary. Who knows you may just have started a fun and exciting new holiday tradition! Happy holidays!
