Did you know Niagara Falls is lit up at night? They have been lighting up Niagara Falls dating back to 1860 when Bengal Lights were used to celebrate a visit by the Prince of Wales. Since 1925 the falls have been lit almost every night except for during WW II when the falls could have been a target to knock out the hydro power. They light Niagara Falls at night to attract and keep visitors overnight to fill up all the hotel rooms where people can view the lit falls right from their rooms until midnight. The effect of the lights is quite spectacular.
