    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Continued, targeted marketing — and an influx of visiting seniors — should help Niagara Falls get through tourism’s typical off season, Wayne Thomson says.

    The chairman of Niagara Falls Tourism said his agency, Tourism Partnership of Niagara and Ontario Tourism Marketing Partnership Corporation are ramping up their fall marketing campaign, particularly in the United States.

    And while tourism usually slows down after Labour Day, Thomson said he’s noticed popular spots such as Queen Victoria Park and Clifton Hill are still packed with people.

    Jimmy Kimmel Show making Niagara detour

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    The Jimmy Kimmel Show will be filming segments in Niagara Falls next week, but it’s still unclear whether Kimmel himself will be here.

    Robin Garrett, CEO of the Tourism Partnership of Niagara, said there’s no guarantee the popular ABC talk show host will appear, but “we are negotiating that as we speak.”

    But fans of Kimmel’s security guard sidekick Guillermo are in luck. The show is sending him to do humorous red carpet interviews during the Toronto International Film Festival, and from Sept. 12 to 15 he’ll make sporadic visits to Niagara Falls for segments to air next week.

    Luring the show to Niagara Falls was a joint effort between Tourism Toronto, Ontario Tourism Marketing Partnership, Canadian Tourism Commission, Tourism Partnership of Niagara and Air Canada.
