Despite some heavy rains, particularly on Saturday evening, the seventh annual Niagara Falls Blues Festival was a hit throughout the weekend, with thousands of visitors partaking in quality entertainment on Old Falls Street.
Presented by the Niagara Festival and Entertainment Group, the fest was a blend of blues at its finest - from Eddie Shaw and Wolfgang with special guest Donnie "Mr. Downchild Welsh" on Friday, to the legendary John Mayall of Chicago on Saturday, and Marsha McWilson and Friends, and later Claudette King, daughter of blues legend B.B. King, on Sunday.
