    Another festive Family Day in the Falls

    No Comments

    From Niagara This Week:

    Puppets, pythons and little princesses. All part of Family Day in Niagara Falls Monday.

    With a fresh layer of snow and the day off from school and work, hundreds of families took advantage of free events at two of the city’s prime destinations, Niagara Falls History Museum and Heartland Forest.

    “It’s quite often our biggest day of the year,” said Clark Bernat, the city’s culture and museums manager. “Last (Family Day) was arguably our biggest day since our opening. We had about 1,200 people out last year.”

    Falls’ new Thunder Gallery gets cracking

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    The rumbling started last spring. This year, the Thunder Gallery wants to storm Niagara Falls.

    Located on Robinson Street next to Club Seven, the contemporary gallery has a hefty ‘to do’ list for the upcoming months. In addition to a Niagara Falls ‘art walk’ and Family Day video projection, owner and curator Marinko Jareb hopes to establish a weekly Night Market during the summer featuring art, food trucks and live music.

    It’s part of Jareb’s plan to create a local gallery with tourism appeal.

    “I would like to embed myself in the cultural fabric of this area,” says Jareb. “This is an international destination, there are a ton of opportunities here.”

    Making memories on Family Day in Niagara Falls

    No Comments

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Niagara – It’s not so much what you do on Family Day, it’s more about having fun and spending time with all those who are so important in your life.

    Mario DeVellis was planning to spend the day at home just relaxing, but his son, grandson and son-in-law had a better idea. They convinced him to go along while they enjoyed some free family skating at the Gale Centre.

    “Winter is very long so it’s really nice to have this Family Day,” said DeVellis. “It gives people a bit of a holiday, especially people who like winter sports like skating, skiing and snowboarding. I think it’s wonderful and I’m all for it. I hope that everybody enjoyed their long weekend.”

    Family Day is the third Monday of February. It’s observed as a public (or statutory) holiday in the three Canadian provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Ontario.
