Whether being part of Canada’s most-watched bash, hitting the clubs for a night on the town or just kicking back in a luxurious fallsview hotel room for a romantic escape with an unparalleled view, Niagara Falls has something for everyone on New Year’s.

“The clock striking midnight is just one small piece of the New Year’s Eve experience in the Falls,” says Anthony Annunziata, Vice-President of Marketing for Ontario’s Marriott Fallsview Hotel & Spa and the Marriott Gateway on the Falls.  “Niagara Falls is the place to be as the excitement ratchets up December 31st.  We’ve got the big bash in the park, live music, two casinos, top-notch restaurants and all the beauty and charm of Niagara wine country.  You have got to be a part of it.”

More Canadians tune in to Entertainment Tonight Canada and Global Television’s New Year’s Eve at Niagara Falls broadcast than any other New Year’s show in the country.  Queen Victoria Park will be packed with 50,000 revellers, including ET Canada hosts Cheryl Hickey and Rick Campanelli, enjoying live music by pop music sensation and former Disney Channel star Demi Lovato and Canadian stars Serena Ryder and Sam Roberts.  The party also includes fireworks at both 9 pm and midnight.
