VIP Treatment Under the Stars (and Fireworks!)

Brews & Cruise Events build on the ultimate Niagara Falls experience

NIAGARA FALLS, Ont. — It only seems like it took forever to get here, but summer has finally arrived and with it is a whole new way to experience the awesome spectacle that is Niagara Falls.

In a special event that featured Buffalo Bills legend and Pro Football Hall of Famer Thurman Thomas, Hornblower Niagara Cruises officially kicked off its all-new VIP Brews and Cruise Events last night, offering a new package that creates an unforgettable experience under the starry skies and Falls Fireworks.

“I was thrilled to have the opportunity to experience the Hornblower Niagara Cruise and VIP event,” Thomas said. “It was a fantastic way to spend the evening with friends, family and the community while taking in the beautiful Niagara Falls. I highly recommend the experience!”

The VIP Brews & Cruise Events features a ride on the Hornblower Niagara Funicular, a two-hour pre-cruise party in the private VIP event tent, gourmet appetizers, private bar service, a DJ and priority boarding for the 40-minute nighttime cruise that takes place under the nightly Falls Fireworks display.

“We’ve taken the already incredible experience of a Falls Fireworks Cruise, and created a full evening event with a pre-cruise party on land and the Falls as our backdrop,” said Greg Bechkos, Hornblower Niagara Director of Sales and Marketing. “So no matter if you’re a local, new in town, or just passing through, we’re excited to offer something new to enjoy in the summertime.”

Hornblower Niagara Cruises has partnered up with Liquid Entertainment to provide DJ music and with Entercom Radio on Friday nights when renowned music-spinner Nicholas Picholas, from Western New York’s No. 1 hit music station Kiss 98.5, will be the special guest DJ.

VIP Brews & Cruise events are available on select dates until Canadian Thanksgiving, with special events to celebrate Canada Day July 1st and American Independence Day on July 4th.
