Niagara Falls in the Fall
Even though Summer officially ends on September 21st, once Labour Day hits and the kids are back to school and everyone is back to routine, we know that summer is definitely winding down. Where did the time go?
Many people don’t know this, but Niagara Falls is just as beautiful in the Fall, as it is in the Summertime. From the changing of the leaves to the cooler sweater weather, Niagara Falls in the Fall, is definitely an experience like no other. Plus it’s a lot quieter which means no big crowds and a lot more Niagara Falls me-time for you!
If you haven’t experienced this beautiful season, you simply must.
Here are a few of our favourite things to do in Niagara Falls in the Fall:
We LOVE our markets in Niagara Falls.
Sip, Savour and Shop and experience over 110 artisans and their amazing creations.
This is a free family-friendly event. Art exhibitions, food, live music and more.
Get your holiday shopping lists out, this is the place to start your holiday shopping. New venue: Scotiabank Convention Centre!
New this Year! This is a 3 day event! Lots of fun for the family: scavenger hunt, costume contest, inflatables, and the biggest wowzer moment is trick -or-treating through the zoo (with lions and tigers and bears…oh my)! Children under 12 are free. Adult admission is $15.
This promises to be a howling good time for the whole family! From pumpkin donuts to corn mazes and hay rides, you certainly won’t hear the words “Mom, I’m bored” from your kiddos.
Warner’s Pumpkin Farm is another great pumpkin patch option. Experience wagon rides, haunted hay rides (for adults and those kids who love a little scare) and the search for that perfect pumpkin to carve.
This is an annual event you cannot miss! Locals refer to this Festival as “Grape and Wine” and have started counting down when it ended last year. You can purchase a discovery pass for $40 which includes three weekends of wine and culinary experiences from 40 wineries in the Niagara Region. Plus you can’t miss the Grand Parade on September 23rd at 11am and the Niagara Grape and Wine Festival in Montebello Park on September 15th – 17th and September 22nd – 24th. It’s one of the grapest experiences in Niagara. LOL
Boo at the Zoo, Brew at the Zoo, what could be next? Maybe a Roo at the Zoo – they don’t have any kangaroos at the moment. This is an event for moms, dads and kids too. Enjoy 15+ Niagara Craft Breweries while enjoying some wildlife with your family (double whammy). Tickets are $10 online or $15 at the gate.
If you like a good scare then you’ll love the haunted hay ride at Haunt Manor. And speaking of scary, this was named Canada’s scariest haunted attraction by Fangoria Magazine and has also been featured on CHCH and numerous paranormal TV shows. Plus it’s located just west of the historic Battle of Lundy’s Lane historic graveyard where the bloodiest battle took place in 1812 (spooky)!
Plus all of the great Niagara Falls Attractions are still open in the Fall.
Hornblower Niagara Cruises – one of the most thrilling boat rides you’ll ever experience
