Staff Reports
Niagara Falls, Ont., Review

Participants have until Dec. 15, if they want to take part in a contest to name the two new tour boats that will be used in Niagara Falls by Hornblower Niagara Cruises.

“We are inviting students and staff at schools from across Canada and around the world to be a part of history — by naming our boats,” said Mory DiMaurizio, General Manager of Hornblower Niagara Cruises. “We are looking for the two perfect names that best reflect Niagara Falls and Canada. We’ve had some excellent submissions — but the contest is not over yet.”

The contest, which is currently open for entry on the company’s Facebook page -, is open until Dec. 15. The winning names will be announced Jan. 1. Winners will receive a VIP stay in a luxury Niagara hotel for five nights with meals and entertainment included.
