Busy Weekend in Niagara Falls

Busy Weekend Planned for Niagara Falls

 
Both locals and visitors always seem to have things to do in Niagara Falls.
 
This Saturday, November 16th we’ll see lots of activity in our historic downtown area. Starting at 9:30 am the annual CYTEC Candy Cane 5K and Fun Run/Walk takes place. This is a fun event where participants dress up (or down) in every conceivable outfits (Santa’s in shorts, etc.) to raise money for our local food bank. Registration (there’s a fee) begins at 8 am in front of city hall. Remember all the money raised goes to a great cause.
 
On the same day, beginning at 10:40 am, the annual Santa Clause Parade winds it way from Victoria and Armoury Streets and ends up at City Hall. It usually lasts for a few hours. I plane to have my grandchildren with me for this event. Don’t forget to bundle up in layers. It can get cold waiting along the sidelines.
