Yesterday at NRPPB pipe practice in Niagara Falls I heard about this awesome event taking place this weekend in Niagara Falls, ON. If you’re a Buffalonian that’s currently experiencing some Hockey withdrawal this could be the fix you have been looking for! Just grab your passport and head over to Clifton Hill to be a part of this awesome looking event…
The Red Bull Crashed Ice season kicks off for the first time in Niagara Falls against the breathtaking and spectacular natural backdrop of the magnificent falls. Straddling the border between Ontario, Canada, and New York, USA, Niagara Falls will host 80,000 people on December 1 in the most thrilling and heart-pumping sporting event. -courtesy of their website
The best part of the event is that it is free to the public!
