It was the talk of the town on Tuesday, September 29 at 5:30pm as the Hornblower Landing and Private Event Marquee Tent was filled with amazing decor, delicious foods and amazing people for the Hornblower Niagara Cruises Venue Reveal Party.
In April 2015, we proudly introduced the 33’ x 66’ Private Event Marquee Tent. Flash forward to September 29, 2015 when we’ve welcomed more than 100 people from the Special Events and Weddings Industry across Niagara and Toronto to our ‘Hornblower Niagara Cruises Venue Reveal Party’. For the first time ever meeting planners, suppliers, and industry professionals gathered at our Hornblower Landing to see what types of events Niagara’s newest attraction will offer.
Despite the rain the event was a great success as it showed off the warm and intimate feel for events less than 150 guests. It also showed guests the possibilities of hosting an event in the rain and how our Events team utilized the retractable clear walls around the tent to avoid cooler outdoor temperatures. Planners and attendees were given a first hand look as to what it’s like to host events a few hundred feet away from the world famous Falls.
With a dozen heaters, amazing entertainment and many food and wine stations people were buzzing with excitement. Live entertainment performed by Patsy and the Muscle filled the venue space with joyful sounds while the event bar featured signature refreshing Niagara wines and local beers.
Earlier in the day, our team staged a Wedding photo shoot aboard our private 142-passenger jet boat known as the ‘Niagara Guardian.’ Minus the rain and the mist the bride and groom had a successful afternoon posing for photos onboard the boat. In 2014 and in 2015, we saw dozens of couples say, ‘I Do’ aboard our catamarans, so this year we are inviting couples to exchange their vows in an exclusive and private way aboard the ‘Niagara Guardian’ followed by a private event with friends and family hosted under the Private Event Marquee Tent.
One of the most wonderful things about choosing Hornblower Niagara Cruises as your next wedding or event venue is the space and location. They say location is key when purchasing a home, however; when it comes to planning an event, location is everything! The Private Event Marquee Tent is nestled in the Niagara Gorge and surrounded by beautiful lush greenery along the Gorge walls. The tent also faces the American and Bridal Veil Falls as the Canadian Horseshoe Falls sits in the distance.
If you or someone you know is planning an event, Niagara Cruises is proud to host various types of events, including:
- Small Weddings
- Cocktail Receptions
- Birthday Parties
- Engagement Parties
- Graduation Parties and many more!
The Hornblower Niagara Cruises Venue Reveal Party wouldn’t have been possible without the help of many of our local suppliers who donated their time and services.
