Niagara Falls, Ontario – Tonight (this Wednesday, December 21st), both the Canadian Horseshoe and American Falls will go dark at 7 p.m. for one minute in support of Ukraine and the Ukrainian people. Following the minute of darkness, Niagara Falls will be lit in blue and yellow for 15 minutes.

  1. Thank you for standing with Ukraine in this public display of opposition to the terror Russia is wreaking. The west is now fully engaged in a war with Russia. May it soon be over. Slava Ukraini.
