For the first time in more than a century, residents of Ottawa and Gatineau will be able to walk to the edge of the Ottawa River’s majestic Chaudière Falls straddling the provincial border and get a good look at the rushing water.

Later this week, the falls will be awash with light and sound with the start of a free nightly show called Mìwàte created to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday. When the month-long show is over, the new viewing platform will continue to allow the public to get close to one of the region’s most striking natural features.
