Niagara’s 2012 Cultural Capital of Canada funding from the Federal Government and Niagara Region is helping to ensure an action-packed Opening Ceremonies, bringing the weekend to life and showcasing the bicentennial across the region. The assistance of partners like The Niagara Parks Commission and Parks Canada are instrumental in the success of the many activities of the Declaration weekend.

“The fact that so much of the war unfolded right here in our backyard is of utmost significance,” says Brian Merrett, CEO of the Legacy Council. “Some Niagarans know very little about the War of 1812 and we want to change that by inviting everyone to commemorate its importance with us. Our weekend’s events are free to the public and will open their eyes to the history that shaped Canada and North America, long before Canada was a country,” Merrett explains.

Activities in Western New York during the Opening Weekend also add to the schedule of events for Niagara’s 1812 Legacy Council, including an event at Old Fort Niagara to commemorate Betsy Doyle; the heroine counterpart to Laura Secord.

The three 1st place winners of the Legacy Council’s colouring contest will be the “VIPs” at Opening Ceremonies. The contest started May 8th, with submissions due May 25th for grades 4-6 students. See discover1812.com for info and to download.
