This St Catharines Standard article is about the holiday weekend in May. Based on my observations from Wednesday, July 1 (Canada Day), it should have been another successful day for the tourism industry.
The tourists are back in town.
Many visitors took advantage of the great weather during the Victoria Day holiday weekend to have a picnic, barbecue or just catch a bit of sunshine along the parkway, at Dufferin Islands or at Kingsbridge Park in Chippawa.
At peak hours during the day, parking spaces were hard to find, and Niagara Parks Police were kept busy directing traffic and keeping vehicles moving, especially in the area across from the falls, where drivers are frequently stopping to drop off or pick up passengers.
