Under beautifully clear skies the two catamarans of Niagara’s newest attraction, Niagara Wonder and Niagara Thunder- of Hornblower Niagara Cruises, were christened yesterday June 10th in the lower Niagara River below the falls. Terry MacRae, C.E.O of the company said, “Things couldn’t be going better for the new attraction. It’s all we had hoped for”.
Interestingly enough the movie, “Niagara”, another great success story, was also shown at the event. “Niagara” starring Marilyn Monroe was filmed close to the same date (mid-June) 1952.Like Hornblower Cruises “Niagara” also turned out to be a great success.
Here are a few photos I took at the christening.
