Niagara Falls will be part of the opening ceremonies of this world wide event that attracts 2,000 athletes from 20 different nations. On Monday, August 17th, part of the official opening ceremonies takes place in Queen Victoria Park opposite the falls. Athletes will march through the park between 6:30 and 9:30 p.m.
The official race takes place in nearby Welland, Ontario at the Welland International Flatwater Centre. It’s the same facilities used for the recent Pan Am games.
I plan on being there to take in this event.
