Vacay.ca Recommends Niagara Falls for Winter Fun
The Winter Festival of Lights and the TD Rink at the Brink offer even more reason to visit the Falls when the weather dips below freezing. Last year, Vacay.ca Managing Editor Adrian Brijbassi reported on the action.
Brijbassi writes: “Skating outdoors is nothing new for Canadians. Doing it a couple of hundred metres from certain death? That gives a new meaning to going over the boards.
The unique thrill of skating adjacent to Niagara Falls is the overwhelming appeal of the TD Rink at the Brink … Expectations are it will host more visitors than it did last year, when 15,000 skaters revelled in the rink set up on Niagara Parkway, about 200 metres across from the natural wonder. Despite the hyperbolic name, there’s no chance of a wayward skater plunging over the Horseshoe Falls. The only threat to a good time, really, is the on-site concession stand running out of hot chocolate.”
