Hotels nearly booked as Niagara Falls prepares for Wallenda stunt

No Comments

From WIVB Channel 4 in Buffalo:

It’s expected to be one of the biggest events happening at Niagara Falls this year – Erendira Wallenda will be flying, suspended from a helicopter by her teeth, over the falls.

“For whatever reason, every time there’s this sense of wonder,” said Andrea Czopp, the Communications Director for Destination Niagara USA. “People do all kinds of crazy things for crazy reasons and I think there’s something about the power of this water that ignites an intrigue.”

The stunt is taking place at 8:30am Thursday, June 15.

From the Buffalo News:

A new restaurant opened two weeks ago in the Wingate by Wyndham Niagara Falls, a hotel on Rainbow Boulevard.

Twisted Olives, 333 Rainbow Blvd., boasts some of the roomiest patios downtown, with a total of 135 feet of patios stretching along two sides of the building.

Despite its hotel location, the restaurant has so far drawn many Niagara Falls residents, said Kristen Clark, managing partner.

From Global News (includes video):

The trapeze-artist wife of daredevil Nik Wallenda is planning her own stunt high above Niagara Falls.

Five years after Nik Wallenda walked over the falls on a high wire, aerialist Erendira Vasquez Wallenda plans to dangle by her teeth from a helicopter as it flies over Niagara Falls.

The one comment that was left on that page at the time I posted this had a one word comment… “Why?” 🙂

GLYNN: ‘Kelly & Ryan’ TV show gives huge boost to tourism

No Comments

Surprisingly, I’ve actually seen very little written about the show in the local papers. I thought there would be more, but the even kind of came and went without much fanfare. There were definitely lots of people there for the show, and I know people who saw some famous people in town, but other than that it seemed to be a non-event. I hope I am wrong. The views of the Falls behind Kelly and Ryan were spectacular, so hopefully it served its purpose from a marketing point of view.

From the Niagara Gazette:

…it can’t possibly match the wide publicity and exposure that the “Live With Kelly & Ryan Show” generated for Niagara Falls, Ont., on Monday and Tuesday. Some 3,000 persons gathered on the broad curved lawn in front of the pergola that connects two open pavilions to watch the show viewed by millions. It was an all-Canadian affair, complete with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police escorting Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to the stage, red-and-white balloons bobbing over the crowd pressing for a closer look at the young PM, and the tiny Maple Leaf flags waving in tribute to that nation’s 150th anniversary. The international touch also was in full breathtaking view with the American Falls (not the Horseshoe) as the magnificent backdrop for the coast-to-coast special…

A beautiful day in Niagara Falls (last Saturday)

No Comments

We’ve had quite a bit of rain this week, but as the week has gone on, it has been quite nice. The weekend looks like it is going to be nice as well. I had intended to post this earlier in the week, but didn’t get around to it. Last Saturday was a beautiful day. The sky was clear and the sun was shining. In some ways the photos I took don’t even do it justice.

Enjoy!
