Earth Hour 2021

NIAGARA FALLS, ON - On Saturday, 27 March at 8:30 p.m. local time, the City of Niagara Falls, Park in the City Committee, and Niagara Falls Illumination Board will join Earth Hour, one of the largest global grassroots movements for the environment, and unite with individuals, businesses and communities around the globe in a powerful call to action of hope for a better, healthier planet.

Non-essential lighting at City facilities and the nightly illumination of Niagara Falls will go dark for Earth Hour. Street lighting and other lighting essential for safety will not be included.

Residents and businesses are encouraged to take part by turning out their lights and Mayor Diodati filmed a short message encouraging all to take part in Earth Hour's Virtual Spotlight.

New this year, Earth Hour's Virtual Spotlight features a special video that Earth Hour organizers promise will display our planet and the issues we face in a new light. Earth Hour plans to post the video on all of their social media channels on March 27 in hope that millions of people, businesses and leaders from around the world will watch, share, and shine a spotlight on the urgent need to address nature loss and climate change.
