This Saturday December 8th, 2012, the third annual Flames Across Niagara event will take place, where bonfires are lit on both the Canadian and American sides of the Niagara River to commemorate the “Burning of Black Rock” and the “Burning of Buffalo” when British and American soldiers set both communities to flames during the War of 1812.

In Fort Erie ON and Buffalo NY, bonfires will be lit directly across from each other and at the same time between 6 and 8 p.m. The fires will be lit at the Jarvis St. coal docks in Fort Erie and Squaw Island in Buffalo, beside the International Railway Bridge.
