Dollar Day on Clifton Hill!


things to do in Niagara Falls this weekend

Sunday, January 15th, 2017 is the 29th annual Dollar Day on Clifton Hill for Niagara Falls residents.

Niagara Falls residents are encouraged to take part is this yearly event with participating attractions along Clifton Hill being only a loonie, with these funds going towards Cystic Fibrosis research.

About Cystic Fibrosis

Dollar Day on Clifton Hill raised thousands of dollars last year and we are hoping to raise even more in 2017. Cystic Fibrosis Canada describes Cystic Fibrosis (CF) as “the most common fatal genetic disease affecting Canadian children and young adults with no known cure. CF primarily affects the lungs and digestive system. In the lungs, where the effects of the disease are most devastating, a build-up of thick mucus causes increasingly severe respiratory problems. This mucus and protein also build up in the digestive tract making it difficult to digest and absorb nutrients from food. Large quantities of digestive enzymes must be consumed with every meal and snack.”

Nancy Clayton, the Vice-President of the Niagara Chapter of Cystic Fibrosis Canada, came up with the idea of “Dollar Day” years ago, with the first Dollar Day in 1989. She wanted to find a way to raise awareness of a disease that few people know much about, while raising money for the cause. It has been a huge success ever since.

According to the organization, about one in 25 Canadians carries a defective version of the gene responsible for CF.

  1. Is dollar days open to residents of Niagara region (ie. Welland, Port Colborne, St.Catharines etc) or just residents of the City of Niagara Falls? Thsnhs

  2. I was wondering how come it’s only open to Niagara area residents. I would love to attend and help out with the cause but we live in South Western Ontario.
    Thank you.

  3. Wondering- if I have a guest from out of town, but I myself am a Niagara Region resident, can they come with me?

  4. Will you be ok with showing of a health card with a copy of your bank statement that has your address due because I can’t get a drivers license because of my health and don’t have a passport and I’m not a student either. Thank you

  5. No, Skylon does not participate and the Hornblower is closed for the season (they won’t reopen until May *weather permitting).

  6. How crowded does this event get? Are the lineups huge? Also, do you pay at each attraction or is there a main ticket booth for all?

  7. This is amazing. Me and my son will be going. He is 2 and is a carrier of CF. Love what you guys are doing.

  8. I wish there would be a special rate for people who moved out of Niagara but love to bring their kids to this.

  9. If you come from Cambridge, will you pay normal prices for all activities on Clifton hill for January 10/16?

  10. Hi there I’m from Stoney Creek, are we able to come? I’m just wondering what is considered Niagara region? Hoping we are able to be apart of this event.

  11. I just moved back to Thorold waiting for my id to come in. What can I bring when I go with my 4 yr old nephew?

  12. So I go to Niagara College, I have an NC student card, and I live in Welland for school. Do I still count?

  14. We’re new to the area we live in Ridgeway our ID is still from PEI is there any other way we can take part

  15. This should be for *anyone*. I have family outside of the falls that would love to attend but cannot afford the normal prices. Especially when they have 3 and 4 children.

  16. Hi, I live in the Niagara region, but we want to bring a guest that lives in Hamilton, would that be allowed or would every single person attending must be from the Niagara region?
