    This is the Niagara Falls Review’s summary of the year 2016. This isn’t all tourism-related, but obviously has some things highlighted.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    January

    • The numbers are in for attendance at the city’s annual New Year’s Eve extravaganza at Queen Victoria Park. Organizers said 35,000 people attended the free concert featuring Tom Cochrane, Alan Doyle and Down With Webster. It was the first concert in many years not to have been televised.

    Moody Mother Nature doesn’t dampen annual Museums Dollar Day for Cystic Fibrosis

    From Niagara This Week:

    Despite some moodiness from Mother Nature, the annual Museums Dollar Day for Cystic Fibrosis was “a smashing success”, according to organizer Nancy Clayton.

    “It took a few years off my life, worrying about the weather,” Clayton said with a laugh.

    What started out as a rainy day with a few breaks in the weather grew wintrier as the day wore on. By mid afternoon it had begun to snow, but that didn’t stop thousands of people from checking out attractions on Clifton Hill and area, even with some long lineups.

    “I was at Movieland (Wax Museum) and you could tell the weather by what people had on,” Clayton said. “By 3 p.m. people had snow on them.”

    Justina Fife of Niagara Falls has lived in the area all of her life and had never visited the museums. She was impressed by what she saw at the Rock Legends Wax Museum on Centre Street.

    “I just wanted to try them out,” she said.

    And she said she liked what she saw at Rock Legends.
