Generally, each year my family purchases a daily calendar for us to read at dinner. We’ve done jokes, trivia about certain TV shows, etc. Last year we had a daily Family Feud calendar. On December 4, the survey question was “Tell me something you associate with Canada”. The number 2 answer was about Niagara Falls.
I was able to get on the Niagara Speedway the other day for the first time. It’s pretty fun. I’m going again on Monday with the rest of my family, and I’ll report more then.
From Buffalo Business First (sometimes the article shows up free, sometimes you need a paid subscription):
On a sunny spring afternoon, Asian tourists climbed off a bus in the Fallsview District of Niagara Falls and made their way toward the iconic waterfalls, many with cameras in hand.
Those who didn’t immediately head to a nearby overview were busy taking selfies near the Fallsview Casino.
Those 40 tourists are symbolic of the more than 14 million people a year who visit Niagara Falls, Ontario. They come not only for the dramatic views but for a growing list of attractions.
From the St Catharines Standard:
It wasn’t fatigue or exhaustion that caused Bernadette Miszk to break down as she approached the finish line at the Niagara Falls Women’s Half Marathon, Sunday.
Nineteen-year-old daughter Julianne stood at the finish line, waiting to place a medal around her mother’s neck…
More than 1,600 women participated in the half-marathon which wound its way along the Niagara River Parkway and passed by the falls twice before finishing at the Upper Rapids Boulevard parking lot.
About 280 women completed the new 5k run, including Julianne and her twin sister, Emily.
