The New York Power Authority (NYPA) will hold its annual Deck the Halls event on Saturday, Dec. 9th, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Niagara Power Vista, 5777 Lewiston Road, Lewiston, N.Y. The family event features free photos with our special guest, Santa Claus, as well as crafts courtesy of the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (NYS OPRHP) and University Heights Arts Association, Buffalo, N.Y.

Enjoy free rides on the Niagara Scenic Trolley between the Niagara Power Vista and Gorge Discovery Center during the event. In addition to tree viewing, guests are invited to enjoy the all-new state-of-the-art exhibits at the Niagara Power Vista. Visitors can take a seat in a 4-D theatre virtual roller coaster ride, create a transmission distribution system on a one-of-a-kind transmission grid table, build a dam or simulate the coordination of power across the state during bad weather.
