The Battle of Lundy's Lane Comemmorative Event - July 25

Be a part of this once-in-a-lifetime event. Echoing the footsteps of soldiers from 200 years ago, participants will walk through the streets of Niagara Falls. Follow the path that these soldiers took along the Portage Road on that fateful day, 25 July 1814.  

STARTING AT 7:30PM
With starting points approximately 2.5 km (1.5 miles) from the battlefield, participants will walk through the streets and converge on the Battlefield at dusk, following the old portage road like the combatants on that horrendous night 200 years ago. Once there, a unique experience will overtake you, where you will be involved in the remembrance of the bloodiest battle of the War of 1812. Next Company Theatre will provide us with an immersive performance that puts you at the center of the action.  Participants who register will get a red or a blue commemorative shirt which will determine their starting point in this walk.  You will be part of the commemoration and represent the over 5000 soldiers who met in the battlefield.

The Lundy's Lane Historical Society will be holding a commemorative service on the battlefield commencing at 7:30 p.m. Following this service, there will be a candle light vigil up to the Lundy's Lane Memorial. Attendees of this event are encouraged to bring a blanket or lawn chair. Following this, the participants in the walk will invade the battlefield.
