Watch the sparks fly and feel the beat with Hornblower Niagara Cruises’ VIP Brews & Cruise Event Series

NIAGARA FALLS, Ont. — Taking a cruise to the base of the Horseshoe Falls is an amazing experience unto itself; doing it after nightfall, with fireworks lighting up the night sky and a social gathering to kick off the night takes it to another level.

Hornblower Niagara Cruises’ all-new VIP Brews & Crews Event begins at the top with a ride on the new Funicular transporting guests down to the Riverside Patio featuring breath-taking 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 you can mix and mingle while enjoying private bar service, gourmet party appetizers, and live DJ before priority boarding for the unforgettable 40-minute Falls Fireworks Cruise.

“Seeing Niagara Falls up close and personal under starry skies is magical,” says Mory DiMaurizio, vice- president and general manager of Hornblower Niagara Cruises. “The VIP Brews & Cruise Events offers an enhanced experience, with a great night of food & 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, WNY’s #1 Hit Music Station, Kiss 98.5’s Nicholas Picholas will be the special guest DJ.

“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,” says Greg Bechkos, director of sales and marketing. “Everyone is looking for new 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.”
