Colors of Tunisian Flag to Light Niagara Falls on Sunday
The embassy of Tunisia in Ottawa said on Friday that the famous Niagara Falls will be lit up with the colors of the Tunisian flag to celebrate the country’s national day.
“On the initiative of the Embassy of the Republic of Tunisia in Ottawa celebrating the 67th anniversary of Tunisia’s National Day, Niagara Falls will light up with the colors of the Tunisian flag,” the embassy said in a Facebook post.
The event will be held on Sunday (March 19th) from 10 pm to 10:15 pm (CET).
The attraction known as Niagara Falls comprises three waterfalls that span the border between Canada’s Ontario province and New York State in the US. The largest of the falls is Horseshoe Falls, which is located on both sides of the international border between the US and Canada. It is also called Canadian Falls. The three falls have a vertical drop of over 160 feet, and over 5.9 million cubic feet of water goes over the crest every minute. The falls were first illuminated on September 14, 1860, when 200 lights were placed to mark a visit from the Prince of Wales. Electricity was first used to light the falls in 1879.
