Reggae musician Fire Lion performs Saturday night in Niagara Falls at the first One Love @ The Border music festival. It's the first event held at The Grove, a new Niagara Parks Commission venue, nestled between the Oak Hall moraine and the Floral Showhouse. A month ago, it was an unused maintenance area, but the NPC is converting it into an open space capable of holding concerts and temporary sporting events.
One Love Order @ The Border is hosted by Real Music Group, a Toronto concert event company that hopes to use the new venue for future gospel and hip-hop festivals.
RMG president Thomas Tripodi said performers at this weekend's event like Faith Evans, Errol Dunkley and Edi Fitzroy have followings among reggae fans. He expects the event three-day event to draw fans from western New York and southern Ontario. Tickets are $49 per day with a $30 premium for access to a VIP lounge.
