Niagara Falls Pride Illumination and Old Falls StreetEvent Categories:
Niagara Falls, 14303
Join Niagara Pride, Niagara Falls State Park, and Old Falls Street in celebrating Pride Month and the anniversary of the Stonewall Riots.
Old Falls St invites you to walk down the Pride Rainbow decorated street and stop by the “Let’s Fall In Love” Mural for a selfie at the Niagara Pride selfie station. The mural is by Casey Milbrand, the same artist who produced the “Greetings from Buffalo” mural downtown and the “Looking Good” mural on Hertel Avenue. This beautiful mural boasts a rainbow of color along the building on Old Falls St in Niagara Falls, featuring a pattern of hearts and the phrase “Let’s Fall In Love.”
Additionally, Niagara Falls will be lit up 3 times in the Pride Rainbow on June 28, 2021 at 9pm, 10pm, and 11pm. Each instance will last for 15 minutes. Experience the beauty and majesty of the Falls while at the same time seeing them lit up in the Pride Rainbow as a tribute to the anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. The Stonewall riots were a series of spontaneous demonstrations by members of the LGBT community in response to a police raid that began in the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, at the Stonewall Inn in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City. Patrons of the Stonewall, other Village lesbian and gay bars, and neighborhood street people fought back when the police became violent. The riots are widely considered to constitute one of the most important events leading to the gay liberation movement and the twentieth century fight for LGBTQ+ rights in the United States.
