From the Niagara Falls Review:

Horror fans loved having a Niagara Falls convention this weekend dedicated to all the things they love.

“I like it because it’s a lot more intimate, it’s more segregated to the horror genre,” said Aaron Kellar, who Saturday dressed up as Freddy Krueger from A Nightmare on Elm Street during the first-ever Frightmare in the Falls at Scotiabank Convention Centre.

It will be up to the City of Niagara Falls whether to replace the controversial Destination Marketing Fee with a new hotel tax, says Eleanor McMahon, Ontario’s minister of tourism, culture and sport.

“That will be up to municipalities, that will be up to them to decide,” she told the Niagara Falls Review during a sit-down interview following her address to delegates this week at the Ontario Tourism Summit at the Scotiabank Convention Centre.

Ontario Tourism Minister Eleanor McMahon celebrated the success of the sector in the province, while acknowledging it faces challenges as a result of her government’s policies.

“This sesquicentennial year has been nothing short of extraordinary, with so many special events and visitor experiences,” she told a room full of delegates during the second of a two-day Ontario Tourism Summit at Scotiabank Convention Centre in Niagara Falls Tuesday.

“While there is much to celebrate, I am — we are — cognizant that there are some challenges on the horizon, and despite our significant assets and opportunities, you have been grappling with some challenges.”

Canada Day might have come and gone, but the party for Canada’s 150th isn’t over yet.

Members of the Canada 150 committee in Niagara Falls have been busy planning and organizing the city’s official Canada 150 Signature event entitled 150 Fun Fest in the Falls, set to take place this Saturday at the Scotiabank Convention Centre. Festivities include a daytime and evening component featuring Canadian musician Matthew Good — both are free to attend.

“We wanted to provide members of our community the chance to celebrate what it is to be Canadian, with an event tailored for people of all ages,” said Chris Dabrowski, chair of the Niagara Falls Canada 150 committee. “Best of all, it’s free to attend.”

CWF Canada invades Niagara Falls

From Niagara This Week:

Over the years Niagara Falls has always been a popular destination for honeymoons and professional wrestling.

From the years of Tony “Cannonball” Parisi, Neo Spirit Pro Wrestling’s monthly shows at the old Polish Hall on Stanley Avenue, and the WWE retail store on Clifton Hill, Niagara Falls has always been a staple in the professional wrestling business.

On Saturday, August 12, professional wrestling returns to Niagara Falls as CWF Canada invades the Scotiabank Convention Centre with an action packed card inside of the Fallsview Theatre at 7:00 pm.

While the card is still being established, some of the early names for this event feature some of the very best in professional wrestling today.

Former WWF superstar Paul London will be in attendance as he takes on “Reckless” Ryan Swift in what will be a hard-hitting and fast-paced contest.
