- It all began 12,000 years ago when a huge trench was carved to create Niagara Falls, spectacular natural wonder. At the time, the Falls were about 11 kilometers (seven miles) down river in the Lewiston-Queenston area. In their present position, the Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian side and the American Bridal Veil Falls are eroding at a fast rate. Together, they pour about 60,000 cubic meters (200,000 cubic feet) of water every second over the brink. Come the winter holiday season, the Falls are beguilingly decked out for the annual Winter Festival of Lights.
