    Niagara Falls fireworks


    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.

    Does anyone go to the Skylon Tower arcade?


    Yesterday I walked through the Skylon Tower SkyQuest Family Fun Centre and I was literally the only one there. I recognize that it was a rainy day at the beginning of May, but I always see at least a couple of people. However this time there was not a single person. It was deserted. I didn’t even see any workers.

    From Niagara This Week:

    The weekend GO trains which ran into St. Catharines and Niagara Falls during the past two summers will become a regular occurance.

    Earlier this month, GO Transit announced the summer service, which saw four trains a weekend coming to the region from Toronto, will become a part of its regular network.

    This means the trains will once again begin arriving next May.
