This is the Niagara Falls Review’s summary of the year 2016. This isn’t all tourism-related, but obviously has some things highlighted.
From the Niagara Falls Review:
• The numbers are in for attendance at the city’s annual New Year’s Eve extravaganza at Queen Victoria Park. Organizers said 35,000 people attended the free concert featuring Tom Cochrane, Alan Doyle and Down With Webster. It was the first concert in many years not to have been televised.
It’s disappointing this won’t be on TV. I’ve never gone down to the park to see anything live, but we always watch it.
From Niagara This Week:
Canadian content will be king at Niagara Falls for New Year’s Eve.
The Niagara Parks Commission and the City of Niagara Falls, along with its other New Year’s Eve partners unveiled the lineup for this year’s Dec. 31 event, set to take place in Queen Victoria Park.
Down With Webster will kick off the event, followed by Great Big Sea frontman Alan Doyle. The show continues with Dennis DeYoung, founding member of famed rock group Styx while Canadian rock icon Tom Cochrane and Red Rider close out the night.
