From the Niagara Falls Review:
The first annual Niagara Falls Night Market and International Food Festival is scheduled to take place during Labour Day weekend.
The event was created by the same creators as Toronto’s Ford Waterfront Night Market and will transform a large outdoor space on Sept. 2 and 3 between 2 and 11 p.m.
The event, to be held at L8 Niagara Fairgrounds at 13030 Lundy’s Lane, will feature a large selection of food and art vendors, fashion shows, live music, buskers and a kids zone.
From the Niagara Falls Review
Last year, over 35,000 people were re-introduced to a revamped Queen Street during the inaugural Springlicious festival.
“It was a big surprise,” said Don Weaver, owner of GPS Pursuits and chairman of Celebrate Old Downtown which is the special events wing of the downtown business association.
“We didn’t realize there were that many local people out there who were still interested in seeing Queen Street.”
Twelve months after the original Springlicious, the downtown core has continued to evolve and organizers are optimistic the festival’s return will once again revitalize the area.
The second annual beer, wine and food festival will be held Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
