From Niagara This Week:

Organizers of the Ontario Power Generation Winter Festival of Lights say extra funding from the city will allow for the festival to expand its programming for the 2017-18 event.

On May 9, city politicians approved a request for $300,000 in additional funding so organizers could expand programming to mark a number of milestones — the festival’s 35th anniversary, along with the sesquicentennial of both Ontario and Canada.

“Not only will this funding allow us to draw more visitors to Niagara Falls but at the same time we can expand our programming which provides locals with a world-class festival right here in Niagara,” said Tina Myers, executive director of the festival.

From the Niagara Falls Review:

Executives behind a new Niagara-based television station say the news, sports and weather-focused channel will fill a void in the region.

Called Niagara News TV, the St. Paul St.-based station will run nightly newscasts from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. from Monday to Friday, and paid programming and regular news updates the rest of the time.

The television station — broadcast on channel 556 — will be beamed into the homes of 55,000 Cogeco digital subscribers in the region starting Monday at 6 p.m.
