No Comments

From the Niagara Falls Review:

About 500 people will try and survive a 21-obstacle course in Niagara Falls this weekend.

Survive, because they will hunted down by at least 50 zombies.

The fourth annual Zombie Mud Run returns to Campark Resorts on Lundy’s Lane Saturday.

Starting at 8:30 a.m., participants will navigate a five-kilometre muddy obstacle course, all the while trying to avoid a horde of walkers trying to take away their lifelines.

Country star Quayle lights up campground

I’ve never heard of her, but what a cool experience if you were a camper there…

From the Niagara Falls Review:

When blossoming country star Stephanie Quayle recorded her catchy road trip tune Winnebago, she had no idea it would lead to her first-ever visit to Niagara Falls.

But it was all part of a week of firsts for her, including a performance on top of the Empire State Building and at Cooperstown. All because she decided to take her own song’s advice.

“It represents that feel good, take to the open road kind of song,” said the Montana-born singer shortly after rolling into the Falls Saturday. “I get these wild ideas, so I went to the label and said, ‘Man we’ve got to go live this song.’”

In this case, it meant visiting all six places name-dropped in the song, which includes Buffalo. And she wasn’t about to visit Buffalo without a side trip to Niagara Falls.

Partnering with KOA (Kampgrounds of America), whose head office is in Montana, Quayle performed a mini-set at the Niagara Falls location on Lundy’s Lane to surprised campers Saturday at 7 p.m., before doing another impromptu set on Hornblower Cruises Sunday morning.

From Niagara Falls Review:

There’ll be a prehistoric addition to this year’s Ontario Power Generation Winter Festival of Lights.

Among the new additions to the 34th edition of the festival will be a 10-foot-tall 3D woolly mammoth as part of the Canadian wildlife displays at Dufferin Islands…

The expanded eight-kilometre illumination route runs along the Niagara Parkway as well as the surrounding districts of Fallsview Boulevard, Victoria Centre, Clifton Hill and Lundy’s Lane.
“For over three decades now, countless local residents and businesses have come together to support and promote what we feel is the best winter festival celebration anywhere,” Niagara Parks Commission chairwoman Janice Thomson said Thursday at a press conference at the Floral Showhouse.

The provincial agency this year invested $300,000 on lighting, programming and infrastructure improvements within Queen Victoria Park.
