Elvis Niagara Falls
Historically Niagara Falls has always been a town that saluted Elvis, right back to the days of the Elvis Museum at Clifton Hill’s former Maple Leaf Village (a former amusement park and entertainment complex that opened in 1979 and shut its doors in the early 1990’s). Currently, Casino Niagara now stands where the Maple Leaf Village once stood. The Elvis Museum featured a red and black 1967 Cadillac Coupe de Ville that was used during Elvis and Priscilla’s honeymoon in May of 1967. In 1975, Elvis put on a concert a couple of years before his death on July 13th, 1975 in Niagara Falls, NY. Today, Elvis Niagara Falls still lives on in various tributes in the next few weeks!

The Greg Frewin Theatre located at 5781 Ellen Av., just steps away from Clifton Hill has a performance for the Elvis lovers out there coming up on Saturday, August 27th, 2013. Tim E and the Yes Men is a multi award winning 12 peice band crowned the “2010 Grand Champion” at the Collingwood Elvis Festival, and is rated as one of the top 10 Elvis tribute artists in the World today. Tim E and his band sells out performances right around North America and this Elvis Niagara Falls performance will be no different, so get you tickets early!

After the show, take a stroll down to Clifton Hill for some more entertainment! Get a bird’s eye view of the Falls on the Niagara Skywheel at an amazing 175 feet (53 metres) in the air and pick one of two courses to challenge your competitors to on one of Trip Advisors and En Route magazine’s #1 top rated miniature golf course, the Dinosaur Adventure Golf! These two attractions are perfect for a couple on a night out to catch the Elvis performance — and chances are, smack dab in between those two attractions and the Tim Horton’s and Boston Pizza Clifton Hill, you will find Clifton Hill’s own “Golden Elvis“. He’s been a fixture on the “Street of Fun by the Falls” for years and stop and take a photo with the man in the extravogent gold attire and he will hand you some Mardis Gras beads as a momento.
