    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    The tropical heat of the Butterfly Conservatory played host to some cold-blooded fun over the weekend.

    The popular Niagara Parks attraction re-opened to the public Saturday after being closed for renovations.

    On the opening day guest list was a menagerie of critters from Little Ray’s Reptile Zoo including a 14-metre-long python, an alligator and a giant snapping turtle.

    Kevin Dungey, known as Caiman Kevin to the audience, hosted a series of interactive shows over the holiday weekend aimed at scientific education and animal awareness.

    “It’s all hands on and interactive,” he said, while holding an albino reticulated python.

    “You just don’t often get a chance to see these animals up close.”

    From the Niagara Falls Review (includes video):

    A great big sea of New Year’s Eve revellers flooded Niagara Falls where a lineup of popular entertainers and unusually warm weather led to a bigger-than-normal crowd for the annual concert in Queen Victoria Park.

    Barenaked Ladies, Great Big Sea and rapper Kardinal Offishall ushered in 2011 from a stage overlooking the Horseshoe Falls and tens of thousands of fans.

    “The new year will bring good things for all of us. Most of us… Many of us,” Barenaked Ladies singer Ed Robertson joked with the audience.
