One of the simple little things that gets done around Christmas time, is the windows of several of the attractions and restaurants on Clifton Hill get painted with a winter and/or Christmas scene. I love them. The people who do them are very talented! Here are some of windows at Boston Pizza, Ripley’s Believe It or Not, Tim Hortons, Canada Trading Company, Strike, and Fudge Factory
Earlier this month I received the latest email newsletter from Safari Niagara. When my kids were younger we used to get our family season memberships every Christmas. We really enjoyed it.
Last week I received the latest email newsletter from Safari Niagara.
From Niagara This Week:
There’s some tiny inhabitants amongst the poinsettias and other flowering plants populating the Niagara Parks Floral Showhouse in its annual Christmas display.
The display, which runs until Jan. 12 at the showhouse located along the Niagara Parkway, is for a second year showcasing miniatures obtained by the Niagara Parks Commission from the City of Oshawa.
Two weeks ago I received an email newsletter from the Greg Frewin Theatre.
Last week I received the latest email newsletter from Oh Canada, Eh? Dinner Theatre.
From the Niagara Falls Review:
It’s a Wednesday afternoon a few days before Christmas and the last thing Dino Fazio wants to see is weather like this.
As winter begins, rain is pouring onto the outdoor skating rink built near the Table Rock building.
After seven years of heading up the Winter Festival of Lights, the 40-year-old Fazio knows weather is one of those elements he just has to roll with.
“When you’re involved in outdoor events, the one thing you can’t control is the weather. You’re always worried about it,” he said.
A few years ago, it seemed that almost every store/attraction/restaurant in the Clifton Hill/Victoria Avenue area had Christmas-themed window paintings. I’m not sure what has happened, but this year and last year I think it was only the Ripley’s properties that did the paintings.
When it opened on black Friday, organizers of the Holiday Market in Niagara Falls thought they could hit 400,000 visitors.
Now, it appears they will only get around half that. With four days before Christmas, an estimated 150,000 people have visited the market.
Despite that, the people behind the European style market say it is a success, and a big reason is out of town guests.
