I just came back from my early morning walk along the falls and was amazed to see the overflowing garbage containers in the park area. A sure sign of a very busy weekend.
Then I picked up a local newspaper and read Niagara Parks Police estimate the crowd for this past combined Canada Day and U.S. Independence Day was in the neighbourhood of 800,000.
Officials credit this on two major things, great weather and the recent showing of Niagara Falls to millions of viewers of the Kelly and Ryan Live show aired a few weeks ago.
