    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Niagara Parks will conduct its annual rock-scaling operations along the Niagara Gorge wall on the Canadian side of the Horseshoe Falls Monday to Thursday, weather permitting.

    The activity removes any loose rocks and debris that built up during the winter months.

    It’s intended to ensure the safe operation and opening of the lower observation deck of the Journey Behind the Falls attraction, scheduled to open Friday.

    Brink of Niagara Falls perfectly safe for spectators – as long as they follow the rules

    From Bullet News Niagara:

    The steel railing and stone wall that divides tens of thousands of tourists from the beauty and power of Niagara Falls are almost always wet and slippery from the mist that routinely drifts out across the city.

    But the obvious potential for danger, the signs warning people to keep their feet on the sidewalk, constant reminders from police patrolling the area around Table Rock – even with all of that, some people can’t resist tempting fate.

    “We see it all the time,” said Niagara Parks Police Chief Doug Kane. “It’s very disturbing … very disturbing.”

    So even on a breezy August Monday afternoon, with three incidents serving as fresh reminders of the dangerous and deadly consequences, there they were, visitors scaling the barrier at the brink of the falls, anxious for that apparent metre or two of added closeness to one of the world’s greatest wonders.

    Sleep Cheap underway, rooms still available

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    As families started checking into their hotels Monday for what has become a Niagara fall tradition, organizer Jim Diodati says this will be “an odd year” for Sleep Cheap, Charities Reap.

    “It has been great, especially having the water parks all on board and having a great big inventory. It’s been great,” said Diodati, who will become mayor Dec. 6.

    Some hotels have booked the rooms they set aside, but more than a dozen listed vacancies on the city’s website.

    Yet, the organizing committee and participating hoteliers aren’t sure if some behind-the-scenes changes will affect the number of families walking through the doors of the city’s hotels.
