From the Niagara Falls Review:
It was the first Niagara Biker Rally, and judging by the tremendous response, it won’t be the last.
The aim was to bring hundreds of motorcycle enthusiasts from across Canada to town during the Father’s Day weekend to see what the Niagara area has to offer and to raise money for charity.
It worked and organizers couldn’t be happier.
“This is our first one and we made some mistakes, but we’ll do things better next time,” Sue McDowell, executive director of the Fallsview BIA, told those in attendance Sunday morning at the Rapidsview parking lot, across the road from Marineland.
From a PR Web press release seen at Hospitality NET:
An array of Niagara Falls accommodations — all within walking distance of the Falls — have made the destination’s mild fall weather even more enticing with affordable Fall Getaway Packages at www.FallsviewBoulevard.com.
Just steps from the mighty Falls, IMAX Theatre, indoor waterparks, and Fallsview Casino, hotels including the Ramada Plaza Fallsview Hotel and the Oakes Hotel Overlooking the Falls offer escapes for families and couples alike — starting at just $99.
“Hotel amenities and a range of indoor Niagara Falls attractions guarantee a thrilling experience whatever the weather. Evening Niagara entertainment is also easy to find, with the Stay n’ Play packages at the Rainbow Motor Inn, Fallsview Inn’s Casino Token Package and the popular Embassy Suites Fallsview Las Vegas Magic Show Package.” said Sue McDowell, Executive Director of the Fallsview Business Improvement Area.
From Buffalo Business First:
Regional and provincial officials gathered in Niagara Falls, Ont., Friday morning for the ceremonial ground breaking for the city’s first convention center.
The nearly 200,000-square-foot, $100 million center is being constructed just off of Stanley Avenue and in the shadow of some of the city’s largest hotels. Niagara Falls officials have been pressing for a convention center for more than 25 years, but the deal finally came together when private-sector interests, including Falls Management Co. LLC — operators of Casino Niagara and Fallsview Casino Resort — and the Fallsview Business Improvement Association helped fund the project. That milestone agreement helped move the center from the dream stage to reality.
