The New York Power Authority has kicked-off the holiday season with its annual Festival of Trees, running through Jan. 5. On Dec. 8, NYPA will hold its annual Deck the Halls holiday event featuring photos with Santa. Both events take place at the Niagara Power Vista, 5777 Lewiston Road.
The Festival of Trees features a display of artificial evergreens placed along the Power Vista's glass walkway and adorned with energy efficient lights and decorated for the season by local non-profit groups.
The Deck the Halls holiday event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Guests can experience craft-making with the state Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation; performances by the Niagara Experience Players; and an exhibit on energy efficient lights.
