Fort George Ghost Tours

Posted by on Oct 24, 2011

Looking for things to do in Niagara Falls? Why not try a haunted ghost tour? I know what you are thinking…”there’s no such thing!” And maybe you don’t think so, but the Fort George Ghost Tours are all about telling the real stories of people’s experiences with spirits. This guided walking tour will take you through dimly lit Old Fort George (the most haunted place in Canada)!

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...

Balls Falls Thanksgiving Festival

Posted by on Oct 6, 2011

Set within the Twenty Valley watershed, Balls Falls is a spectacular place to go with family or friends, especially because of its scenic beauty. Since Hayley and I love the outdoors, we thought that we would check it out. Upon entering, you pay a small fee to help preserve this beautiful site. As we started to walk throughout the grounds, we were able to feast our eyes on one of the many Niagara Falls waterfalls. It was beautiful! We decided to take a closer look and climb down to see it. (If you are going to take a closer look at this waterfall, make sure that you are wearing appropriate...
