    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Niagara museums will go loonie later this month with more than a dozen attractions in the Clifton Hill area offering a deep discount on admission prices for local residents.

    Niagara Falls residents can visit 14 attractions for $1 on Jan. 15 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

    The popular $1 Museum Day event will raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Canada. More than $12,000 was raised last year.

    The event has been entertaining local residents for the past 24 years.

    “It’s become a second-generation event,” said Nancy Clayton, vice-president of the foundation’s Niagara chapter.

    “Now, we get people who grew up with the event who are now bringing their own kids.”

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    It’s become an annual family event for the Goldfinches.

    And best of all, it benefits a worthy cause.

    Linda Goldfinch and her son Branden, both from Niagara Falls, took in several of the tourist attractions along Clifton Hill Sunday as part of the annual $1 museum day to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

    “We’re going to hit them all,” Linda said, referring to the 16 attractions that opened their doors to people for $1.

    “We come every single year. It’s a great family day.”

    From Niagara This Week:

    For Nancy Clayton there couldn’t be an easier fundraiser than the $1 museum day.

    As the vice-president of the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CCFF)’s Niagara chapter, she’s been organizing the event for the past 23 years. It started with a need to fundraise funds for cystic fibrosis research but what it’s become is an annual community event that Niagara Falls residents not only participate in, it’s something they look forward to.

    “We’ve had people calling asking us when the next one’s going to be,” she said. “The community really likes it.”

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Playing tourist for a day was a welcome escape for the Hesse family of Niagara Falls.

    Mike, Melissa and their 10-year-old daughter Sara enjoyed several of the tourist attractions along Clifton Hill as part of the annual Loonie Museum Day to benefit the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

    “It was fun,” Sarah said.

    The Hesse family attend the event every year.

    “This is an awesome event for the city,” Mike added.

    Sixteen attractions opened their doors to local residents for $1 admission and many people braved the cold to take advantage of the reduced rate.

    The event has been raising funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation for the past 22 years.
