    Dollar Day returns to Niagara Falls

    No Comments

    From Niagara This Week:

    It all started with a cough that wouldn’t go away for Angela Morris.

    “They started thinking I had pneumonia,” Morris, a Grade 9 student at Stamford Collegiate Secondary School says.

    As it turns out, doctors at Niagara Health’s St. Catharines site found it was something completely different — and life changing — for the Niagara Falls teen. It was discovered she had cystic fibrosis or CF for short…

    Since being diagnosed last year, Morris has had to make a few changes in her life.

    “I can’t sleep over a friends’ houses. I can’t play sports,” she says.

    But according to Nancy Clayton, vice-president of CFC’s Niagara chapter, situations like Angela’s can now be avoided.

    Clayton is busy putting together the finishing touches on this year’s Dollar Day, which raises funds for cystic fibrosis research. Niagara Falls residents can get into a 13 different attractions — wax museums, haunted houses and others — on Clifton Hill for just a loonie. This year’s event — the 29th annual — takes place on Jan. 15 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with the exception of the Ripley’s Moving Theatre, which closes at 3 p.m.

    The Suitcase and Heels blog has posted about a recent trip to Niagara Falls. It includes some fantastic pictures!

    The sign says that Clifton Hill is the street of fun at Niagara Falls to which I add a caveat… if you’re a kid. Most adults will probably find it to be a cheesy drain on their wallets. Everything may be overpriced but I still had fun photographing the over-the-topness of it all. I was here when I was 9 and you know what, almost nothing has changed. There are still the same haunted houses, wax museums, arcades and gift shops. One thing that I do love about Clifton Hill is how colourful every thing is. Here, see what I mean:

    “What makes a haunted house?”

    Someone with a Blogger blog posted about a recent trip to a Haunted House on Clifton Hill:

    …I think there are 4 major haunted houses on Clifton Hill: The Fear Factory, Dracula’s Castle, Frankenstein’s…um, castle (?), and another one that has just as terrifying a name and plays the scary music from Halloween onto the street…

    Someone posted a very thorough write-up of their trip to Niagara Falls this past weekend:

    This weekend, I went to visit Buffalo and Niagara Falls. It has been a couple of years since I went to Buffalo, and many years since I’ve been to Clifton Hill and Niagara Falls. I think the last time I was at the Falls was in 1991, and prior to that it was when I was 8 years old. It’s true, I don’t get out much. 🙂

    We drove up Thursday and went over to Clifton Hill. Clifton Hill is very close to the falls and a major tourist attraction. There is no shortage of things to do, from visiting the Ripley’s museum to checking out the Tussaud’s wax museum to the haunted houses. Parking is a bit of a pain because you have to re-up your permit every two hours or park very far away. We made due though, because we had a cooler full of cold drinks which was nice on a hot night.

    Clifton Hill is awesome, but the one drawback is that it is very expensive. Each attraction is generally between $10.00-$15.00, so when you add that up you spend lots, and fast. We did not go through every attraction, but that’s ok. We plan to visit again this summer to see the few that we missed.
