There are fireworks over the Falls on July 4th but it’s only a ten minute display. If you would like to see a real good old 4th of July fireworks display you can view them at one of three locations within a 5-20 minute drive from the Falls on the US side of the border. Try Hyde Park (near Pine Ave, & Hyde Park Blvd), Niawanda Park in North Tonawanda or our favorite Academy Park in Lewiston NY. All shows start at dusk.

Best vantage points for viewing the Fireworks over the Falls: Oakes Garden Theatre & Queen Victoria Park in Canada. All dates and times subject to change and dependent upon weather.

Travel tip:

The fireworks at the falls lasts for about eight minutes and it is very small compared to a typical 4th of July type display!
