I’ll be posting some more about the Winter Festival of Lights, but here’s a start. On the night that my wife and I went to Sparks Steakhouse, we went for a walk afterwards. Here are a few pictures of some of the lights. Make sure you also check out the animated gif I created of the Zimmerman Fountain that I posted to twitter.
From Niagara This Week:
Even after he was initially turned down in his bid to cross Niagara Falls on a high wire, Nik Wallenda said it was his faith that guided him through the entire process.
“What a journey it was to get permission to walk across Niagara Falls and to be able do that through that process praise the name of Jesus,” Wallenda said. “That’s the only thing I know to do. That’s how I was raised. That’s where I find my peace and my comfort when I’m on that wire.”
Wallenda was in Niagara Falls Oct. 30 for the annual Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast at Club Italia.

Border crossing in the Canada was less entertaining than last time we were here (we were here last right after 9-11 and the border guard asked Robby what we were going to do in Canada. And in our Southern drawl he said “tourism”-which probably sounded a lot like “terrorism” to the guard. He said “excuse me?” as he was reaching for his gun!…or at least that is the way I like to tell the story). We drove right up Clifton Hill to our hotel. Their website says it is only a block from the falls-well, it is the longest block I have ever been on. It is probably more like 5 blocks but very walkable since the weather is unbelievably perfect. The kids were comfy in the jackets tonight but we were fine without them (especially when pushing the strollers back up the Clifton Hill to our hotel-up the long, long “block”).
