What's Happening in Niagara Falls May 20th - 26th

May 22nd: The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs at Artpark Theater
Artpark May 22ne
Are YOU afraid of the Big Bad Wolf? What really happened? YOU decide!
The Dallas Children's Theater will bring their national touring production of "The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs!" to the Artpark Mainstage Theater on May 22nd. Two hilarious performances will be presented at 10:00 am and 7:00 pm and tickets are $7.00 per person.

Based on the popular book by John Scieska and Lane Smith, the play begins where the book leaves off. Alexander T. Wolf, a.k.a. Big Bad, finally gets to tell his side of the story and YOU, the audience, determine the ending of the play in this rock hip-hop-ity musical that will blow the hair off your chinny chin chin!

May 23rd: The War of 1812 in Niagara County



Join the Niagara County Historical Society for this interesting program highlighting the War of 1812 events that actually took place in Niagara County. The program will be held Thursday May 23rd at 7:00 pm at the History Center.

 May 24th: The Avett Brothers at Artpark Theater
 Since their major label debut in 2008, the Avett Brothers built up a sizable following based on their rowdy, infectious stage shows. In concert, the high-flying ensemble tears through tunes with unbridled energy, popping banjo and guitar string right and left while inciting stomping singalongs among audiences that appear to know every word. At times they would seemingly create their own subgenre onstage - "punkgrass," for lack of a better word. This much is for certain: the Avett Brothers are a grassroots phenomenon, built from the ground up.
Inside is sold out, but Lawn seats are still available.
