Niagara, Ontario – The Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority (NPCA) is excited to welcome the community to the 2nd Annual Ball’s Falls Holiday Trail<> this winter season.

The NPCA is thrilled to announce the return of a cheerful and bright holiday tradition at Ball’s Falls Conservation Area, with thousands of sparkling lights along its trails, a skating rink, and immersive activities.

The Ball’s Falls Holiday Trail will run each evening, from November 26 to January 9, 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. It will be closed on December 24, 25, 26, and 31.

The Holiday Trail is an evening trail walk experience featuring a 1.5 km (round trip) illuminated path through natural areas along the Niagara Escarpment and Twenty Mile Creek and the 1800s heritage village of Glen Elgin at Ball’s Falls Conservation Area.

Each evening families will have the opportunity to play winter scavenger hunt games, visit the holiday craft station, skate under the stars on our eco-friendly ice rink, warm up by the campfire, and enjoy holiday music inside the heritage barn and chapel.

Weekend programming (Friday-Sunday) will feature live musical performances by local artists and performers and live children’s programming, as well as tours through heritage buildings.

Visitors can do some holiday shopping as well, from unique, local craft and artisan vendors in the stunningly lit Centre for Conservation. Finish the visit by warming up in the Big Barn and enjoying food and beverage refreshments.

Per public health guidelines, all guests 12 and over must provide proof of vaccination upon check-in at the Centre for Conservation. In addition, masks are required within all indoor areas, including the Centre for Conservation and Barn.
