Organizers of the Winter Festival of Lights have added parades to the nighttime spectacle, beginning today.
The parades featuring floats and marching bands will get under way at 8 p.m. at the Rainbow Bridge and proceed south along the Niagara Parkway to Table Rock. Parades will be held every Friday with the exception of Christmas Day. One is scheduled for Dec. 26, however. The final parade is on New Year's Day.
