    From Niagara This Week:

    If you’re heading to Niagara Parks property or attractions on the long Civic Holiday weekend, the commission said that people should be aware of some road closures.

    The holiday weekend is a chance to witness the Siege of Fort Erie Re-enactment or to take in a free live concert following by fireworks over the falls, the Parks said. To handle the lineup of events and celebrations planned, the following road closures will be in effect on Sunday, Aug. 4

    Busy holiday weekend in Niagara Falls

    This St Catharines Standard article is about the holiday weekend in May. Based on my observations from Wednesday, July 1 (Canada Day), it should have been another successful day for the tourism industry.

    The tourists are back in town.

    Many visitors took advantage of the great weather during the Victoria Day holiday weekend to have a picnic, barbecue or just catch a bit of sunshine along the parkway, at Dufferin Islands or at Kingsbridge Park in Chippawa.

    At peak hours during the day, parking spaces were hard to find, and Niagara Parks Police were kept busy directing traffic and keeping vehicles moving, especially in the area across from the falls, where drivers are frequently stopping to drop off or pick up passengers.

    Critters invade the Butterfly Conservatory

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    The tropical heat of the Butterfly Conservatory played host to some cold-blooded fun over the weekend.

    The popular Niagara Parks attraction re-opened to the public Saturday after being closed for renovations.

    On the opening day guest list was a menagerie of critters from Little Ray’s Reptile Zoo including a 14-metre-long python, an alligator and a giant snapping turtle.

    Kevin Dungey, known as Caiman Kevin to the audience, hosted a series of interactive shows over the holiday weekend aimed at scientific education and animal awareness.

    “It’s all hands on and interactive,” he said, while holding an albino reticulated python.

    “You just don’t often get a chance to see these animals up close.”

    Labor Day at Niagara Falls

    From the Long Island International Travel Examiner:

    Make a run for the border (the other one) to get away this holiday weekend. The Ontario side of Niagara Falls has many popular restaurants, bars, attractions and, of course, those Falls. (Do you know there are several different ones?)

    When I drove there in July, it took approximately 9 hours from mid-L.I., but I stopped a couple of times and got lost in the Bronx.
