From the Niagara Falls Review:
Outdoor skating is on its way to Table Rock.
The Niagara Parks Commission has approved a plan by the Winter Festival of Lights for the ‘Rink at the Brink,’ putting a 20- by-40-metre sheet of ice next to the Horseshoe Falls.
Festival of Lights manager Dino Fazio envisions a family attraction similar to the world-famous rink at New York City’s Rockefeller Center.
“It has been quite a challenge for us this year with this project,” he says. “The timelines have been tight since Day 1.”
Planning began in February, and Fazio says the “logistics” were overwhelming.
But once it’s up and running in November, he expects it to become an “iconic” winter attraction for the city.
Someone with a Blogger blog has posted about a recent trip to Niagara Falls (including pictures):
Even if I have been here before, I was still excited when I found out that our former officemate in SGS would drive us to Niagara to see The Great Falls. I was excited for my family especially the kids. It was a Labour Day Holiday so Jocel and Tina fetched us early last Monday and drove us to Niagara. At last, I saw the falls from the Canada side and I got a better view of the Horseshoe Falls which I was not able to see last year because it was misty and there was snow in the viewing deck in the US Park. It is still summer or the start of Fall but the place is still misty, we were not able to get near the Horseshoe Falls or the camera will get wet. Here are the scenes that we were able to capture in our Niagara Falls adventure:
LIFE.com has some great shots of natural wonders, including this one of Niagara Falls…
From the Niagara Gazette:
After a man was stopped from jumping into the Niagara River and plummeting over the Horseshoe Falls Tuesday night, emergency personnel were unable to stop another man’s attempt Wednesday morning.
Unfortunately, it seems that the police are keeping busy with this sort of thing…
