There’s no doubt a cruise to the base of the Horseshoe Falls is an amazing experience, but doing it after nightfall, with fireworks lighting up the night sky takes things to a whole new level.
Hornblower Niagara Cruises’ new VIP Brews & Crews Event begins with a ride on the new Funicular transporting guests down to the Riverside Patio featuring breathtaking views of the Niagara Gorge. After a stop at Digital Attractions for a keepsake souvenir photo, it’s off to a two-hour pre-cruise party in the VIP event tent where guests can mix and mingle while enjoying private bar service, gourmet party appetizers and a live DJ before priority boarding for the 40-minute Falls Fireworks Cruise.
Mory DiMaurizio, vice-president and general manager of Hornblower Niagara Cruises, says that: “Seeing Niagara Falls up close and personal under starry skies is magical. The VIP Brews & Cruise Events offer an enhanced experience, with a great night of food and drinks, live DJ and VIP pre-boarding for our Falls Fireworks Cruise where you can get the best spot to watch the spectacular fireworks over the Falls.”
Hornblower Niagara Cruises has partnered up with local entertainment company, Liquid Entertainment, to DJ every Saturday to Thursday and with Entercom Radio, where every Friday night, Nicholas Picholas, from Western New York’s Kiss 98.5, will be the special guest DJ.
Greg Bechkos, director of sales and marketing, notes that: “When we were planning for this season, it was important to us to include a new nighttime experience that local residents in the Niagara region and Western New York or as far as Toronto would take part in.”
Bechkos continued: “Everyone is looking for new and exciting things to do on weekends and during the summertime so why not a night out that has it all — great food, music, scenic views, cruise and fireworks — for less than $100 a ticket. We’re looking forward to hosting guests from near and far for what will be a memorable experience for all.”
VIP Brews & Cruise Events kick off on weekends starting May 24, then run daily from June 14 until Sept. 2, and again on weekends through the rest of September and into October until Canadian Thanksgiving.
