“Live with Regis and Kelly” Originates From the Beautiful Oakes Garden Theatre May 22 and 23, 2006
NEW YORK, NY–(MARKET WIRE)–Mar 9, 2006 — Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa will head north to visit their neighbors just across the border, when “Live with Regis and Kelly” travels to Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada, for two shows airing May 22 and 23, 2006.
The visit marks a return trip for “Live with Regis and Kelly.” “Live” first ventured to Niagara Falls in 1996, shooting two shows at the gorgeous Oakes Garden Theatre. “Live” will return to the venue again this year. With its breathtaking backdrop of the American and Horseshoe Falls, Oakes Garden again will provide a stunning setting for the popular morning show.
“We’re always on the lookout for intriguing and picturesque destinations to which we can travel the show, and Niagara Falls is a perfect fit,” said Michael Gelman, executive producer of “Live.” “We had a great time when we last visited — the people are terrific and the venue is beautiful — and we can’t wait to make a return trip.”
“On behalf of the City of Niagara Falls and all of our partners — Niagara Fallsview Casino and Resort, Niagara Parks Commission, Ontario Tourism Marketing Partnership, Canadian Tourism Commission and our local tourism stakeholders — we’re extremely pleased and honoured to welcome back ‘Live with Regis and Kelly’ to our community,” said Niagara Falls Mayor Ted Salci. “Having such high calibre entertainment come to our city truly illustrates what a great place Niagara Falls is and it helps us to showcase the many wonders that our city has to offer.”
“With Niagara as its backdrop, viewers from around the globe will experience the majesty of Niagara, all while being entertained by one of TV’s best-loved morning shows,” noted Jim Williams, Chair, Niagara Parks Commission. “Having Regis and Kelly join us in the Niagara Parks, home of the world’s most famous falls, is a great promotion for our community. Two great icons coming together: Niagara Falls and ‘Live.'”
