    Gumball 300 car rally coming to Niagara Falls

    No Comments

    This comes from a press release I received from the Skylon Tower:

    Look out…. ‘the world’s most rock ‘n roll car rally ever staged’ is coming to the Skylon Tower Niagara Falls, Canada!

    On Saturday, May 1 the flag will drop at Waterloo Place on the Pall Mall in London following a day of celebrity entertainment, celebrations and skateboard demo by legend Tony Hawk and his skate team. From London the 3000 mile route begins… [with] stopovers in Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Stockholm. From Sweden all 120 vehicles and participants are flown to North America to continue their journey stopping in Boston, Quebec and Toronto, before a pit stop and lunch at the Skylon Tower in Niagara Falls. From Niagara Falls they’ll head directly to the finish line in Times Square, New York City.

    You can read the full press release here.

    Unfortunately I won’t be able to make it down. My wife is out of town and I’ll have 3 small children with me. I’d end up losing one of them in the crowd!

    Meet Dave, Niagara’s tiniest tourist

    From Niagara This Week:

    He’s a little less than 30 cm tall, cute as a button and cuddly as a kitten.

    And he sure gets around.

    Dave Phillips-Jackson, a Teddy bear from Wales, has been taken to tourist sites all throughout England. His owner, Alison Phillips, sent him through the mail to a friend in Sweden. And for the last few weeks, he’s been in Niagara, where Phillips’ Facebook friend Mary Jane Baker, has shown him what it is like in Canada: taking him furniture shopping, taking him to the bank, and letting him supervise a backyard construction project.

    The picture in the paper was of the teddy bear in front of the Falls. I can’t believe this was considered news…
