'Holiday Lights of Niagara' opening soon

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — This year's event is chaired by Jerald Wolfgang, chairman of the United Way of Niagara board; Dr. James Klyczek, president of Niagara County Community College; and City Council Chairman Sam Fruscione.

In addition to participating sponsors, the celebration is presented by the United Way, the city of Niagara Falls, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local 237 and WGRZ-TV. 

Wolfgang helped coordinate the Festival of Lights that drew countless thousands of visitors to downtown Niagara Falls for some 20 years before it ended in 2001. He also chaired the annual Christmas Parade in the South End on the opening festival weekend. He recalled Wednesday that after the popular event ended, a drive-though festival was staged in Oppenheim Park, Wheatfield, from 2004 to 2007 before it was relocated to Hyde Park.

Additional information about the 2012 Holiday Lights of Niagara Trail can be found online at www.uwgn.org, or by calling (716) 216-4582

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
