From Niagara This Week:
Add Queen Victoria Park to the list of places across Niagara where Tragically Hip fans can go to see the band’s final show.
The CBC’s Tragically Hip: A National Celebration will be shown Saturday, Aug. 20 on two large screens in the park overlooking the Horseshoe and American falls.
Admission is free.
If you haven’t heard about this, you still have time…
If you are a Niagara resident, you can go to the top of the Skylon Tower for free until Friday. We went up as a family this past Saturday, and it was pretty easy. We walked in with our kids. Both my wife and I showed our ID and we all got to go. They didn’t try to upsell us on anything. We just got to go.
I’ll post some pictures later…

Come for the Falls – Fall for the History
From a Niagara Falls Tourism press release seen on Hospitality Net:
One of the most surprising and overlooked Niagara Falls attractions is the great outdoors — and it offers just enough variety to keep everyone entertained whether on an Ontario family vacation or couples’ getaway. Even better, many of the outdoor adventures are completely free.
