“Together with the Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino, the City of Niagara Falls is pleased to offer residents an entire weekend filled with celebrations for the Fourth of July,” Niagara Falls Mayor Robert Restaino said. “Our local families and neighbors will have several opportunities to safely celebrate the holiday, right here in our city. In a time when our community and country are working to become more united, I am pleased to give citizens this chance to show their patriotism and unity.”
“I think Niagara Falls is the quintessential place to spend a weekend that is bookended by the national holidays of both Canada and the United States,” said Kevin Nephew, Seneca Gaming Corp. president & CEO. “The holiday weekend is always a highlight of the summer and a time for celebration and coming together. We’re happy to be part of that excitement and to celebrate together with our guests and our friends and neighbors in Nagara Falls and throughout the region.”
