    The ice is nice: Rink at the Brink is ready for skaters


    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    The unmistakable sound of winter in Canada -metal cutting into ice -will blend with the roar of Niagara Falls when the Rink at the Brink opens today.

    After two weeks of getting it ready, the Winter Festival of Lights attraction will open on Niagara Parks Commission land, creating a new winter attraction festival officials say they hope catches on like skating in New York’s Central Park or in front of Rockefeller Center.

    New winter tradition: Skate by the falls


    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Outdoor skating near the brink of Niagara Falls could become an “iconic” winter attraction the way it has in New York City’s Central Park and Rockefeller Center, says Winter Festival of Lights manager Dino Fazio.

    The festival is firming up arrangements for the Rink at the Brink, an outdoor skating rink near Table Rock House right next to the Horseshoe Falls.

    “It’s for real. We’re still working on dotting the I’s and crossing the T’s. We just have a few things that have to be finalized,” Fazio said Wednesday.

    His organization expects to formally announce the rink project in late September.
