From a press release seen on Marketwire:
More than 100 teams and 800 players from across Canada will head to Niagara Falls this September to battle it out for the hockey Redwood Cup National Championship, taking place across the street from this hotel in Niagara Falls, Canada.
From the Niagara Gazette:
State Sen. George Maziarz, R-Newfane, believes the former site of a now-defunct helium balloon ride in downtown Niagara Falls would make the ideal spot for a proposed attraction involving Nik Wallenda.
There is at least one potential hang up with his plan: The site, located at 310 Rainbow Blvd., is already being eyed by a Buffalo development company as a possible location for a new hotel and mixed-use building.
Maziarz, who played an active role in helping Wallenda obtain the clearances needed for his June 15 walk across Niagara Falls, said this week he believes the property, often referred to as parcel 4, would be the ideal spot for what has been described as Wallenda’s “temporary” entertainment center on the American side.
From WIVB Channel 4 in Buffalo:
Further improvements are getting underway in Niagara Falls State Park.
On Tuesday, the governor’s office announced that NY Works is investing $2 million into the viewing areas at Three Sisters Islands and Luna Island in the park
