    From CHCH (includes video of the fireworks):

    The May long weekend is one of the biggest days for fireworks. Down in Niagara, one man is responsible for creating Canada’s longest running series which kicks off Friday, the first of 70 shows.

    For the past 18 years, David Whysall has been the mastermind behind the fireworks series at Niagara Falls. Whysall is a chemist by trade and worked with the British space program early in his career. He moved to Canada in the early 80’s and worked with Hands Fireworks, Canada’s oldest manufacturer of commercial fireworks.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    All signs point to a perfect summer tourism season in Niagara Falls.

    Redeveloped and new attractions, a favourable U.S. currency exchange and weather forecasts, and the first good indicator: One of the best Victoria Day long weekends in recent memory.

    “I heard at least one person say that he felt he was 30 per cent up from last year on the holiday weekend,” said Niagara Falls Tourism chairman Wayne Thomson.

    “That is unheard of. It was probably one of the best ones we’ve had.”

    From Cleveland.com:

    Spectacular natural beauty. Gloriously tacky man-made fun. Niagara Falls is overflowing with both.

    We experienced the dual sides of the falls on a long family weekend excursion to Canada to see the holiday lights — and then some. And we loved most of it, especially our 4-year-old. So if you decide to head north for a bit of seasonal sightseeing, here are some of our favorites beyond the bright lights and big falls.
