Things To Do In Niagara Falls This Weekend
Friday, August 29th – Sunday, August 31st, 2014
Looking for some fun things to do in Niagara Falls this weekend? The Summer doesn’t officially wrap up until September 21st, but this is it for many kids. This weekend marks Labour Day weekend! Too see some added things to do in Niagara Falls for the Labour Day weekend that haven’t been included in this list, I have an added post exclusively for that. See it by clicking the image below:
Here are some more events:
Niagara Summer of Thrills
Over on Monday, September 1st!!
This is a brand new free event to arrive in Niagara Falls. The “Niagara Summer of Thrills” is a stunt show starring Texas native Enrique Valencia. For 10 weeks, he has temporarily moved to Niagara Falls to share his daredevil acts with us! Each day (with the exception of Wednesday’s and Thursday’s), he will perform 2 different stunts a day (10 minutes each time), four times a day. At 2:00 pm and 6:00 pm, Enrique will be perched upon the 10-storey Imperial Hotel on Victoria Avenue for the “Wheel of Fate”. The wheel is situated on the roof of the Imperial Hotel and is a revolving wheel that Valencia will conduct stunts within — and on top of.
At 4:00 pm and 8:00 pm, he drives a motorcycle across a highwire that is strung together between the Days Inn Victoria Avenue and the Louis Tussaud’s Wax Museum. Suspended beneath the highwire, his assistant will conduct acrobatic routines! This stunt is the “Highwire Sky Cycle” act.
Approximately a half hour before each and every routine, fire and chainsaw jugglers will entertain the audience and help to build and liven up the crowd for the main event. The “Niagara Summer of Thrills” is easy to find. Both stunt acts are located within 30 seconds of the corner of Victoria Avenue and Clifton Hill. Performances take place from June 27th to September 1st, 2014.
While you’re on Clifton Hill, don’t miss out on some of Niagara’s most popular attractions that only the Clifton Hill Fun Pass provides with savings at 50% off the retail price! Click the image below for details:
Check out our brand new Wizard’s Golf now included in the Clifton Hill Fun Pass!
