Country star Quayle lights up campground

I’ve never heard of her, but what a cool experience if you were a camper there…

From the Niagara Falls Review:

When blossoming country star Stephanie Quayle recorded her catchy road trip tune Winnebago, she had no idea it would lead to her first-ever visit to Niagara Falls.

But it was all part of a week of firsts for her, including a performance on top of the Empire State Building and at Cooperstown. All because she decided to take her own song’s advice.

“It represents that feel good, take to the open road kind of song,” said the Montana-born singer shortly after rolling into the Falls Saturday. “I get these wild ideas, so I went to the label and said, ‘Man we’ve got to go live this song.’”

In this case, it meant visiting all six places name-dropped in the song, which includes Buffalo. And she wasn’t about to visit Buffalo without a side trip to Niagara Falls.

Partnering with KOA (Kampgrounds of America), whose head office is in Montana, Quayle performed a mini-set at the Niagara Falls location on Lundy’s Lane to surprised campers Saturday at 7 p.m., before doing another impromptu set on Hornblower Cruises Sunday morning.

From the Plaid Zebra:

Niagara Falls — it’s not a destination that many people associate with peaceful vistas and quiet countryside. Instead, you might be thinking of crowds of tourists and cheesy attractions in the Clifton Hill District. But a road trip to Niagara Falls brings the opportunity to take in breathtaking country scenery, quaint lakeside towns, local wineries and historic sites.

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.
