More than 4,000 people turned out to the Canada 150 Fun Fest inside and outside Scotiabank Convention Centre in Niagara Falls Saturday.

“We’re very happy with the turnout,” said organizer Chris Dabrowski.

The Stanley Avenue venue hosted a full day of free indoor and outdoor events, which started at noon.

The family portion of the event featured food trucks, a kids zone, large inflatables and an art showcase.

The mini Canadiana Comic Con featured the Back to the Future DeLorean, the Batmobile, and The Munsters coach.

Richard Comely, the creator of Captain Canuck, also attended, handing out free comics and signing autographs.

From Niagara This Week:

Canada Day might have come and gone, but the party for Canada’s 150th isn’t over yet.

Members of the Canada 150 committee in Niagara Falls have been busy planning and organizing the city’s official Canada 150 Signature event entitled 150 Fun Fest in the Falls, set to take place this Saturday at the Scotiabank Convention Centre. Festivities include a daytime and evening component featuring Canadian musician Matthew Good — both are free to attend.

“We wanted to provide members of our community the chance to celebrate what it is to be Canadian, with an event tailored for people of all ages,” said Chris Dabrowski, chair of the Niagara Falls Canada 150 committee. “Best of all, it’s free to attend.”

CWF Canada invades Niagara Falls

From Niagara This Week:

Over the years Niagara Falls has always been a popular destination for honeymoons and professional wrestling.

From the years of Tony “Cannonball” Parisi, Neo Spirit Pro Wrestling’s monthly shows at the old Polish Hall on Stanley Avenue, and the WWE retail store on Clifton Hill, Niagara Falls has always been a staple in the professional wrestling business.

On Saturday, August 12, professional wrestling returns to Niagara Falls as CWF Canada invades the Scotiabank Convention Centre with an action packed card inside of the Fallsview Theatre at 7:00 pm.

While the card is still being established, some of the early names for this event feature some of the very best in professional wrestling today.

Former WWF superstar Paul London will be in attendance as he takes on “Reckless” Ryan Swift in what will be a hard-hitting and fast-paced contest.

Convention centre growing in popularity

From the Niagara Falls Review:

Canada’s dominant leisure destination has also become the best meeting destination, says Noel Buckley, president and general manager of the Scotiabank Convention Centre.

“We are the dominant leisure destination in Canada, generating more international demand than any other leisure destination in the country,” Buckley recently told Niagara Falls city council as he updated politicians on how the Stanley Avenue facility is performing.

“But part of rounding out a destination is becoming a destination that attracts more than one type of visitor. The best leisure destinations in North America are also the best meeting destinations. We have become that.”

He said since opening six years ago, the centre has significantly grown in the number of event days it hosts — from 140 in 2011 to 282 in 2016.

From WIVB Channel 4 in Buffalo:

During the winter months unless you’re ice fishing, a lot of fishermen are dreaming of the days the fish are ready to be caught. This weekend, thousands are traveling to The Conference and Event Center of Niagara Falls to get prepared.

One fisherman told News 4,”Gone are the days of the little red and white bobber and a hunk of worm.”

Although it can be as simple as hook, line and sinker, fishermen at the Niagara Convention Center have lots of gadgets to help them get the best catch.
