The Inaugural Jingle Falls 2017 Celebrations

During the 2017 Holiday season, many Niagara Falls community groups and civic stakeholders came together to plan and coordinate activities throughout downtown.  This mixture of indoor and outdoor events was named “Jingle Falls” and took place on the first (3) three Saturdays in December.

Visitors enjoyed the annual traditions of the NF Culinary Institute, plus new traditions like a candlelight stroll, horse and carriage rides, outdoor entertainment and visits from furry winter friends.  We look forward to growing the momentum and good cheer spread throughout 2017.  Thanks to all those who took part. — Find more at www.JingleFallsUSA.com
