Looking for some fun things to do in Niagara Falls this weekend? Here is a list:
Niagara Summer of Thrills
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:

200th Anniversary of the Battle of Lundy’s Lane
On Friday, July 25th, starting at 1:00 pm, there will be the unveiling of the new Gateway over Lundy’s Lane that commemorates the bicentennial of the Battle of Lundy’s Lane. Following this, from 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm up at the Soldiers Monument, the 5th U.S. Infantry will be hosting a reunion and commemorative service that remembers their regiments role at the Battle.
The Lundy’s Lane Historical Society will be holding their commemorative service at 7:30 p.m. Attendees to this event are encouraged to bring a lawn chair or blanket to the event.
A participatory event will start at 8:30 p.m. from two points in the city. With starting points approximately 2.5 km (1.5 miles) from the battlefield, participants will walk through the streets and converge on the Battlefield at dusk, following the old Portage Road like the combatants on that horrendous night 200 years ago. Once there, a unique experience will overtake you, where you will be involved in the remembrance of the bloodiest battle of the War of 1812. Next Company Theatre will provide an immersive performance that puts you at the center of the action and will leave you with an experience that will allow you to remember war and the peace that followed.
The event will take place on the former Battlefield School field – access via Drummond Hill Cemetery and Lundy’s Lane.
In conjunction with this event, both the Niagara Falls History Museum and the Battle Ground Hotel Museum will have free admission!
Visit the Niagara Falls History Museum – open 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Visit the Battle Ground Hotel Museum – open 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
