Free rides on U-S Maid of the Mist
The Maid of the Mist is offering free boat rides this week, but only for visitors on the U-S side.
The Glynn family which owns the boat company will extend its season by two days and will offer free rides this coming Friday and Saturday.
They say its a chance to thank everyone for their strong local support.
But the free rides are only on the U-S side, this is the last season for the Maid of the Mist on the Canadian side after the Niagara Parks Commission awarded the contract to operate the tourist attraction beginning next year to California based Hornblower.
Friday's boat cruises will be held out of Niagara Falls State Park on the New York side of the border from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday.
