Ted Salci, mayor of Niagara Falls, Ontario, said the treaty and the International Joint Commission it created should serve as examples of the strong and respectful bond between both countries.
“What better backdrop for this impressive celebration than the shared beauty and majesty of flowing water over the Canadian and American falls,” he said. “One river feeding two magnificent falls coming together again in the river below, once again becoming our shared waters.”
Saturday evening featured several events tied to the ongoing Boundary Waters celebration, including free concerts at Terrapin Point at Niagara Falls State Park, a free outdoor concert at the Hard Rock Cafe and a fireworks display.
