Come and experience the raw power of the Niagara River’s white-water rapids. Listen to the roar of the river while feeling a deceptive calmness. The tour provides information about the geology of the Niagara Gorge and the plant and animal life you may see. There are many viewing platforms right at the river’s edge.
See North America’s largest series of standing waves! Walk down the quarter-mile boardwalk along the river’s shoreline. Enjoy nature’s beauty and an excellent view of the 410-million-year-old rock layers of the Niagara Gorge.
Cost: $15.00 per person

The Show Must Go On
Music of the 60’s & 70’s
On Wednesday, March 21st, we had great fun at this high-octane production! The music of the 60’s and 70’s kept us clapping. The performers were excellent and they kept us going, running into the crowded theatre, and getting people up to dance around the room.

The Ghost Walk
On Wednesday, October 18, twenty-nine courageous members of the PROBUS Club of Pelham followed a cloaked, top hatted, lantern-carrying tour guide named Sir Richard on a 90 minute storytelling adventure throughout the town of Niagara-on-the Lake.
On a pitch dark night we negotiated sombre streets and foreboding lane ways. Surprises met us as did amazement and delight from even the most skeptical in the group. One of our members assured us that he saw the face of a woman in an upper window of the empty, haunted Tricia Romance mansion. By the way, that home is for lease! A lonely white cat accompanied us on our walk throughout the town as we spotted skunks nearby. Mild weather and distant stars accentuated the evening as Sir Richard enchanted us with stories from a long time ago and bridged the gaps between past and present that allowed us to see the town in a new light.
