If you watched Nik Wallenda cross walk across the Little Colorado River Gorge Sunday, you may have seen a commercial about Niagara Falls. It’s estimated that over five million other people saw it too.
Niagara USA is the group under the Niagara Tourism and Convention Corporation (NTCC) that is in charge of Niagara Falls tourism and marketing. Niagara USA put together a television ad that ran in 15 major markets across the country.
From a PR Newswire press release:
Audience members will have a rare opportunity to engage with legendary entertainer Carol Burnett in an intimate setting as she takes the stage May 4 & 5 at the Fallsview Casino Resort, performing Laughter and Reflection: A Conversation with Carol, Where the Audience Asks the Questions.
Widely recognized for her diverse talents in film, theatre and television, most notably her 11-year run on the variety program “The Carol Burnett Show”, which won 25 Emmy Awards, Burnett has captured the hearts of millions, garnering 12 People’s Choice Awards – more than any other woman in the award show’s history.
From the Niagara Gazette:
The Stanley Cup sure gets around.
It has been in strip clubs, bedrooms, showers, the bottom of swimming pools and on television shows such as Letterman, Leno and Howard Stern, but on Wednesday it was in Niagara Falls playing tourist by taking a ride on the world-famous Maid of the Mist boat.
From the Niagara Falls Review:
Wanna be on TV? Bundle up and head down to Table Rock Thursday.
Weather pending, a major illusion for an upcoming CBC magic special will be filmed at 7:30 p.m.
Producers are being tightlipped about details, but it involves a local magician performing a huge (and dangerous) feat down by the falls involving fire, a giant icicle, a straitjacket, and a few surprises.
How dangerous? Anyone under 18 is asked not to attend because of the intense nature.
I don’t have any inside information, but this has to be another thing that Greg Frewin is doing. Unfortunately I won’t be able to get down there myself, but I’ll walk down there at lunch and take a picture of the setup.
