Blythwood Homes

One of the things that draw people to live in a particular area is the type of community and the cultural events that take place there each year. While Niagara Falls boasts one of the most spectacular natural wonders of the world, along with many other local tourist attractions, it is also an area that contains one of the richest cultural offerings in Canada.

Housing Design that Complements Lifestyle

At Blythwood Homes, we care deeply about finding the perfect living experience to match the needs of those who buy our custom-built homes. People looking for new home builders in the Niagara Region tend to seek out communities that promote an active and social lifestyle because they appreciate how great an impact these things have on ensuring good health and happiness.

Creating the right home for you isn’t just about well-designed floor plans and custom features; it is about joining those who embrace Niagara living in an environment filled with the kinds of experiences you desire. Our homes are built in vibrant communities filled with people who aim to get the most out of their retirement years.

A large part of the ability to do that is based on nearby recreation and other local amenities, including exciting annual events. With this goal in mind, here are a few of the exciting events offered yearly in the area that attracts homebuyers to live there:

Lights on Niagara Falls

While there are many beautiful natural scenes to behold at Niagara parks all over the area, none can match the spectacular view that you get watching Niagara Falls from Queen Victoria Park and the surrounding area when it is lit up in spectacular colour. In 2016, the Niagara Falls Illumination Board installed special energy-efficient LED lighting in various locations around the falls to make this marvel possible.  

Seeing the Niagara Falls lit up in spectacular colour isn’t an annual event; it occurs every night of the year. But you can also view a schedule of special lighting events to discover all of the special events when particular colours illuminate the falls to mark days of the year to support charitable organizations.

Niagara Winter Festival of Lights

The Niagara Falls are beautiful to view during the icy season. In fact, those who live in the region often claim to prefer to enjoy winter in Niagara Falls because that’s when the tourists dwindle and the falls transform into a wonderous icy landscape that’s unlike any other in the world.

If you’re viewing the falls during the winter season, the best time to visit is between November 13th and February 21st, when you can also see the Niagara Winter Festival of Lights. Boasting over 3 million lights along a route that spans Niagara Falls, Dufferin Islands and the Niagara Parkway, this is one yearly event you won’t want to miss!

Ongoing Entertainment at the Niagara Fallsview Casino Resort

If you’re looking for concerts, comedians and other special arts events, one of the best venues in the area is the Niagara Fallsview Casino Resort. Each year, you can find over 300 acclaimed entertainment acts schedules at the resort, providing ample opportunity to find something for everyone. While you visit the resort, you can find:

  • Various Dining Experiences
  • A 200,000 Square Foot Casino Floor
  • A 1500 Seat Avalon Theatre
  • 372-Room Luxury Hotel with a Spa
  • A Brand-New 5000 Seat Entertainment Centre

Niagara-on-the-Lake Events

While Niagara Falls is a bustling tourist destination, the city itself represents just a small portion of events offered in the region. If you take a short drive north along a route that follows the gorge along the Niagara Glen Hiking Trail, you’ll come to the quaint yet bustling community of Niagara-on-the-Lake.

While there, you also want to experience the annual Shaw Theatre Festival located in Niagara-on-the-Lake, which takes place between May and December. Besides the eight main plays that the theatre offers, it also hosts a wide assortment of related events and activities. This year, you won’t want to miss their rendition of the Charles Dickens classic holiday story, A Christmas Carol.
