From the Niagara Falls Review:
It didn’t take long for Marineland and the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (OSPCA) to renew hostilities.
A week after 11 charges of animal cruelty filed by OSPCA against the park were dropped in a Niagara Falls courtroom, the two sides were once again chirping at each other following a surprise inspection of Marineland on Wednesday.
In dueling statements, Marineland said the inspection found “no signs of abuse, distress, mistreatment or neglect” among its animals, while the OSPCA says inspectors found “11 items requiring action” involving veterinarians.
Neither side was budging Friday, referring media requests for comment to their own press releases.
From a Niagara Parks press release seen on Niagara at Large:
The Niagara Parks Commission will host a solar eclipse viewing event at the new Niagara Glen Nature Centre on Monday, August 21th from 1 p.m. – 3 p.m.
Join us at the Niagara Glen to view the solar eclipse from our recently unveiled Niagara Glen Nature Centre.
The event will include guided viewing tours with special protective glasses, as well as crafts for kids and light refreshments, all with a panoramic view of the Niagara River under the darkened sky caused by the eclipse.

The Niagara Falls attraction, in a statement released Thursday, said the inspection further confirms the park’s “total innocence to all allegations made by discredited activists.”
From the Niagara Falls Reporter:
Though the tourist season is still underway, the “Back to School” noises are echoing ever louder, heralding the approaching end of summer’s activities. One of the players in the tourism game is the Discover Niagara Shuttle, which will see its second season close, with lingering thoughts of whether it will see a third.
Sara Capen, Executive Director of the Niagara Falls National Heritage Area and project manager responsible for the Discover Niagara Shuttle, remains optimistic, and hopeful.

With all of the publicity this week for the Niagara Speedway, a new banner/sign has been put on the fence that says they are opening in Spring 2018.
Last fall I posted about an “art installation” on Robinson St that was a collaboration between the DoubleTree Fallsview Resort & Spa by Hilton Niagara Falls and local artists.
Well, the house, as well as the one beside it, have been torn down.
From WKBW Channel 7 in Buffalo:
Get ready for a multi-level go-karting experience in Niagara Falls, Ontario.
HOCO Entertainment and Resorts tells 7EWN that construction on the new “Niagara Speedway” is nearing completion. The spiraling track is being built on Clifton Hill in Niagara Falls and is inspired by “Heavy Metal High Rise” which is a go-kart track in Branson, Missouri.
