    So much fun for just a buck

    From Niagara This Week:

    For a pair of local youngsters, it was a chance to hang for a few minutes with Katy Perry — at least a wax rendition of the pop singer anyway.

    “Everything!” Brooke Annette said when asked what she liked about the annual Museums Dollar Day for Cystic Fibrosis.

    “Everything is great,” sister Caitlin added.

    The Annette girls’ excitement was music to Nancy Clayton’s ears. The vice-president of the Niagara Chapter of Cystic Fibrosis is the organizer of the annual fundraiser, which allows residents entrance to a selection of museums and attractions in the Clifton Hill area for just a loonie.

    “There’s so many happy families, so many happy kids,” Clayton said as she watched visitors take in displays at the Movieland Wax Museum, one of the most popular sites to visit Sunday afternoon, it seemed. Lineups were long, but were constantly moving.

    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.
