A host of returning favorites are planned this summer on Old Falls Street, USA, including daily "Interactive Games," the "Legends Live on Old Falls Street" concert series, "Flicks on Old Falls" movie series, and "Free Family Fun on Saturday Afternoons." All are being hosted on Old Falls Street's middle block, between First Street and Rainbow Boulevard, in downtown Niagara Falls (weather permitting).

Old Falls Street's free "Interactive Games" are hosted daily and include table tennis, foosball, large-scale checkers and chess, "Connect 4" and "Jenga." These particular games are out continuously (24 hours), so guests can enjoy them whenever they are on Old Falls Street, USA.

In addition, several weekly activities are returning, including "Flicks on Old Falls," a free nine-week outdoor movie series beginning Thursday, June 30, and running through Aug. 25. The movies are presented on Old Falls Street's middle block, with a pre-show party beginning at 7:30 p.m. The pre-show is presented by D&B Karaoke and DJ, who is on hand with lively music as guests assemble each week. Movies begin at approximately 9 p.m. (or dusk).

Guests are encouraged to bring blankets and play with Old Falls Street's "Interactive Games." Concessions will also be available for purchase.

The movie schedule is as follows:

  • June 30 "The Muppets"
  • July 7 "Minions"
  • July 14 "The Smurfs"
  • July 21 "Inside Out"
  • July 28 "Aladdin"
  • Aug. 4 "Mary Poppins"
  • Aug. 11 "The Good Dinosaur"
  • Aug. 18 "Monsters Inc."
  • Aug. 25 "Zootopia"

This year, the weekly Friday evening concert series moves to the middle block, closest to the sponsoring Legends Bar & Grill. Appropriately named "Legends Live on Old Falls Street," this 11-week concert series runs from June 24 through Sept. 2, and is expanding to include opening acts, beginning at 5 p.m., as well as a regional food truck each week.

The main acts begin at 7 p.m., with fireworks launched over Niagara Falls closing each show at 10 p.m. Fireworks are visible from the Old Falls Street concert venue.

"We are proud to partner with Legends Bar & Grill this year," said Katie Kielaszek, Old Falls Street's director of events. Their generous sponsorship allows for us to start our programming at 5 p.m. and bring this series to our middle block, where our guests will be able to play with our 'Interactive Games' and enjoy the concerts from our colorful fleet of Adirondack chairs. We are also happy to host a regional food truck each week, including the ever popular Ted's Hot Dogs, Chef's Restaurant and the Dirty Bird Chicken & Waffles truck, for the very first time on Old Falls Street."


Old Falls Street, USA, is also continuing its "Free Family Fun on Saturday Afternoons," an eight-week series hosted from noon to 5 p.m. July 9 through Aug. 26. The series includes Old Falls Street's free "Interactive Games," music by D&B Karaoke and DJ, as well as free interactive performances appealing to a family audience. No tickets are necessary to join in on the fun.
