Warner’s Pumpkin Farm

Posted by on Oct 26, 2011

When is it too early to by a pumpkin for Halloween? Never! Head over to Warner Ranch and Pumpkin Farm, in Niagara Falls, to pick out your pumpkin and get your carve on. I remember going to Warner’s with my school in grade 3 and we each got to pick a pumpkin. I was so happy to bring that pumpkin home. Little kids take pride in carving a pumpkin; it is a fine art that needs perfecting. You and the family can also go on a haunted hay ride starting from 7pm until 11. Although it is a little hooky, it still gets your heart pumping when creatures jump from the forest. I’ll admit that I got...

Niagara Falls International Marathon

Posted by on Oct 21, 2011

As a graduate from A.N. Myer Secondary School in Niagara Falls, I was always a part of The Niagara Falls Marathon, as each school was given a stretch of the race and put in charge of cheering the runners on and providing them with water. This day was always so much fun, decked out in our school’s colours, purple and white! We got to see all the runners, joggers and walkers go by and bring a smile to their tired faces with our cheering and songs. This year, on October 23rd, over 5000 participants will take on the marathon, half marathon, 10k or 5k! There is a line up of awesome speakers who...
