    A beautiful day in Niagara Falls (last Saturday)

    No Comments

    We’ve had quite a bit of rain this week, but as the week has gone on, it has been quite nice. The weekend looks like it is going to be nice as well. I had intended to post this earlier in the week, but didn’t get around to it. Last Saturday was a beautiful day. The sky was clear and the sun was shining. In some ways the photos I took don’t even do it justice.

    Enjoy!

    Visit to Movieland Wax Museum in September 2016

    No Comments

    Each month I take one of my kids out on a “date”, and since I work in Niagara Falls, they often like to come down to see one of the museums or play some games. Back in September my daughter wanted to come down, so we ended up going to Movieland Wax Museum of Stars on Clifton Hill. Read More…

    Summer 2010 is “over”… was it good?

    I know that summer doesn’t officially end in this part of the world until September 21, but in this tourist area it might as well be over. The beginning of September and the passing of Labour Day makrs the beginning of school. That means that family vacations are no more. The weekends might still be busy here, but things are significantly slower during the week.

    So, how as Summer 2010? It’s hard to get a good read on this. Admittedly, I haven’t contacted anyone who their input (I don’t think they’d give me an honest answer anyway), but my impression was that it was a better year that they’ve had the last couple. Here are a few of my own observations (including some comments I’ve made before):

    • There often seemed to be a lot of people around
    • There were more US license plates seen
    • The weather was fantastic
    • Apparently the motorcycle get-together, and the Elvis festival were not big hits
    • The new Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville opened and always seems to have a decent number of people in it
    • I didn’t go, but it sounds like the party for the opening of the Hart & Huntington tattoo shop was the place to be

    Hopefully the last couple of years were the bottom, and with improved business will come even more growth. I assume that the new convention centre will only help…

    From Niagara This Week:

    It’s going to be girls, girls, girls chasing after men in blue suede shoes as loyal fans of the King invade the streets of Niagara Falls this coming August.

    While employees of local hotels, motels and other places of accommodation key in reservation requests, the innovative and anticipated plans for the 2010 Niagara Falls Elvis Festival (NFEF), August 19 to 22, are soaring with great expectations.

    New sign at Movieland on Clifton Hill

    A couple of weeks ago I mentioned the new signs on the side of Movieland on Clifton Hill. The same picture is on both sides of the big sign. It shows Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow, Miley Cyrus as Hannah Montana, and Elvis.
