A LABOUR OF LOVE
With scorching hot summer temperatures, guests from around the world were looking for ways to cool off and beat the heat and what better way than with a daytime boat ride.This Labour Day Monday was off to a great start when the massive ball was brought by it’s entourage to the Hornblower Landing where visitors were surprised when they discovered the giant ball of fun. We asked guests what type of love they were celebrating and for some it was visiting Niagara Falls, Ontario for the first time while for others it was being in the presence of their family and friends while on vacation. As the ball went out on multiple trips aboard the ‘Niagara Wonder’ and the ‘Niagara Thunder.’ The ball was the talk of the boats as guests from Belgium, Israel, Chicago, Illinois, Italy, India and Venezuela and even our friendly neighbors in Toronto, Ontario had a chance to get their picture taken with the famous love ball. The ball will continue making its debut among the crowds until Thursday, September 10, 2015 before travelling to New York City at Hornblower Cruises & Events.
WHERE DID THE BALL ORIGINATE FROM?
