A News Release from Ontario’s Niagara Parks Commission and the Ontario/New York Niagara Falls Illumination Board
Posted June 13th, 2021 on Niagara At Large
Niagara Falls, Ontario – In support of the Montreal Canadiens’ pursuit of the Stanley Cup, as Canada’s last remaining team in the 2021 NHL playoffs, the Canadian Horseshoe Falls will be illuminated tonight in Red, White and Blue from 9:30 to 10:00pm., the night before the team begins its next series.
No Canadian team has won the Stanley Cup since 1993, when the Montreal Canadiens defeated Wayne Gretzky and the Los Angeles Kings four games to one to claim their record 24th Championship.
All special illumination requests are reviewed and approved by the Niagara Falls Illumination Board, which has financed and operated the “illumination of Niagara Falls” since 1925.
The Niagara Falls Illumination Board is made up of representatives from the City of Niagara Falls Ontario, City of Niagara Falls, New York, Ontario Power Generation Inc., New York Power Authority, New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation and The Niagara Parks Commission. It is the Illumination Board’s responsibility and mandate to finance and maintain the nightly illumination of both the Horseshoe and American Falls.
