    It’s not about competition. It’s about complementing each other.

    With news this week Nelly Furtado and Hedley will headline the Niagara Parks Commission’s free New Year’s Eve concert at Queen Victoria Park, organizers at the city’s convention centre say it will go hand-in-hand with the Deadmau5 show at the Stanley Ave. facility.

    “Different styles of music, different crowds,” said Jeff Dixon, assistant general manager of the Scotiabank Convention Centre. “We all have our musical preferences and tastes. What this does is cement Niagara Falls as the true New Year’s Eve destination in Canada.”

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    When something works, the Niagara Parks Police like to stick with it.

    Even though Ontario’s liquor laws were loosened up a bit this past summer, those wishing to have a few drinks at the New Year’s Eve party in Queen Victoria Park will have to remain inside a designated area where alcohol is served.

    “The last two years we’ve had a licensed area and that discourages people from bringing in their own alcohol into the park and we don’t have to worry about people tripping over empty bottles or bottles being thrown,” said Niagara Parks Police Chief Doug Kane. “We are able to secure the area so that it’s remains a safe family event.”
