Old Falls Street announces summer lineup

Niagara Gazette — Free concerts, street entertainment and recent blockbuster movies are all set to return to Old Falls Street this summer. There are some new things coming as well, though, as event organizers and marketing gurus at Global Spectrum attempt to once again capitalize on what promises to be a strong tourist season.

Everything from new, outdoor dining opportunities to some mobile businesses paying a visit to the landscaped street will continue to pull people to the street to experience what Niagara Falls has to offer, said Ryan Coate, general manager of Old Falls Street and the Conference & Event Center Niagara Falls.

One of the new offerings hitting Old Falls Street will be some new food offerings, both thanks to some visiting food trucks this summer and its own chef, who will be offering some healthy alternatives along with some classic additions for people in the area.

"What we've done is create a fresh, new menu filled with great tasting food, some vegetarian items," Chef Kate Elliott said. "We feel this will lend itself to helping visitors to the Falls continuing their memorable experiences they're already having here in the area."

Food trucks, meanwhile, will be setting up shop along Old Falls Street regularly on Mondays and Tuesdays, with Amy's Truck kicking off each week and popular American food vendor The Roaming Buffalo visiting Tuesdays. Joining the Tuesday crowd will be a unique mobile store with the inclusion of Ooo La La Fashion Truck, an offshoot of an East Aurora women's clothing boutique run by recent Buffalo State College graduate Crista Botticello.

The Old Falls Street experience will also include several live performances and interactions with Encounter Niagara reenactors on scene with the likes of Nikola Tesla, Annie Edson Taylor and other famous Falls-related historical figures.
