Did you ever imagine yourself touring the city in style and we mean in style! It’s the time of the year when you can be whoever you want whether it’s your childhood superhero, a celebrity impersonator or if you a woman, simply give yourself a reason to sport a sparkly tiara all day! Halloween is around the corner and our team here at Hornblower Niagara Cruises are celebrating BIG with a free daytime boat ride to the Falls for locals to the Niagara Region. Locals are encouraged to come dressed in their most creative, colourful, spooky or funny Halloween costume to receive free admission aboard our daytime ‘Voyage to the Falls’ boat tour.
HOW DOES THE CONTEST WORK?
It’s easy! Come dressed in a Halloween costume to our Hornblower Ticket Plaza which located under the giant white sails along the Niagara Parkway. Bring your license with you if you are over the age of 18 years to show proof of your Niagara residency. Once your board the boat for your Niagara Falls experience take picture of yourself and post them to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtags #NiagaraCruise and #HornblowerHalloween for a chance to win amazing prizes. Last year we had a great turn out of visitors who were anxious to get out and experience Niagara’s newest attraction in their own backyard for free. If you missed last year’s event we’ve created some reasons why you should come out for a few hours in your afternoon for some Hornblower Halloween fun.
1. EXPERIENCE OUR ATTRACTION FOR THE FIRST TIME
2014 was a big year when we officially opened to the public on May 15, 2014. Within less than 2 years we’ve had the privilege in welcoming more than 2.6 million visitors. Whether you already visited or have not had a chance to this is the great time to explore the natural wonder and our amazing attraction at no cost.
2. GIVE YOURSELF A REASON TO DRESS UP
Dressing the kids up is always fun, but why not give yourself, the kid at heart a reason to dress up with your kids and spend a few hours of your day celebrating the festive celebration. Whether your costume is a creative one or a simple Halloween favourite like a witch or pumpkin come and sport your costume and your smile for great prizes and a chance to get up close with Niagara Falls.
3. SHOW OFF YOUR CREATIVITY
Whether you are one to purchase your Halloween costume at the store one day before or even on the day of Halloween or you have the thumb for sewing, patience for painting and enjoy making your own costume, whatever you wish this is a great time to come aboard our catamarans and take a few picture of yourself in costume and share it our social media pages. Not only will you be showing off your ingenuity and creativeness to thousands of our followers but you will also win some SWEET prizes from businesses in Niagara Falls. Don’t forget to use our hashtags #NiagaraCruises and #HornblowerHalloween
4. COME FOR THE FALLS, STAY FOR THE PRIZES
We can’t think of a better way to enjoy a Saturday in October than with free boat ride to Niagara Falls, free candy and walking away with awesome prizes. We are thanking our friends at Clifton Hill, Frankenstein, Screamers and Hershey’s World in Niagara Falls for our amazing prizes. Love what you see below? This could be yours by simplifying sharing a photo or two of yourself with your family and friends dressed in costume using our hashtags #NiagaraCruises #HornblowerHalloween.
