September 15, 2020 Tuesday Pre-Rally Oh Canada Eh Dinner Show


Cost: Approx. $70 CAD/Person (New Rates will be available in early 2020)

The amount includes the show, a five -course family-style dinner, all taxes and gratuity.
This two-hour show features all-Canadian music; from maritime folk songs to modern pop. Come meet our singing Mountie, Hockey Player, Anne of Green Gables, Klondike Kitty and more. This high-energy production features over 70 songs from all-Canadian artists including music from Paul Anka, Celine Dion, Shania Twain, the Bare-Naked Ladies, Avril Lavigne, Justin Bieber and many, MANY more. While you're enjoying the show, our performers serve our famous all-Canadian, family-style meal; at what other restaurant are you served your dinner by a singing Mountie?

Your meal begins as soon as you are seated when you are served our Garden Salad, Fresh Bread and French Canadian Pea Soup. Once these courses are complete, the show begins.

Your main course is served approximately 45 minutes into the show. Enjoy a taste of Canada from coast to coast with a selection of Manitoba Roasted Chicken, Lightly Battered & Fried Atlantic Haddock, Alberta Grade “EH” Roast Beef, Vegetable Medley and Roasted PEI Potatoes. Your main course is served family-style on large platters so you can help yourself!

After more laughs and music, you are served a Maple Chocolate Swirl Cake, Hot Tea & Coffee.

September 18, 2020 Friday The “Falls Fireworks Cruise” by Hornblower Cruises


Cost: Approx. $40 CAD/Person (New Rates will be available in early 2020)

There is nothing like a cruise and the sight of exploding fireworks over Niagara Falls to make your visit memorable. Our 40-minute Falls Fireworks Cruise features starry skies, panoramic skyline views, stunning illuminations, and, of course, fireworks that light up the sky—and your family’s faces.

Plus, your admission ticket includes access on the one-of-a-kind Hornblower Niagara Funicular (https://www.niagaracruises.com/visit/hornblower-niagara-funicular/) with panoramic views of the world-famous Falls as you travel to our Riverside Patio and boarding area in the Great Gorge.

NIAGARA’S ONLY WINERY, DISTILLERY & BREWERY

A 45-minute guided tour that reveals the secrets behind Wayne’s wine and whisky! This experience celebrates family, history and Wayne Gretzky’s dream of opening a world-class winery and distillery. On your journey you will get a behind-the-scenes look at our distillery equipment, from the hammer mill to the copper stills, to learn more about our local ingredients, distilling and blending processes, and our rigorous standards for creating award-winning whisky and spirits.Delicious, approachable wines created from the finest Niagara and Okanagan grapes. Innovative Canadian whiskies, spirits and beer that are changing the game. Whether enjoying a bottle at home or visiting our Niagara-on-the-Lake property, Wayne Gretzky Estates Winery, Distillery & Brewery offers you an opportunity to experience a whole new side of The Great One.

Production may be a world away from the hockey rink, but there are some surprising similarities between the way Wayne Gretzky played and coached the game and the experience you will have at Wayne Gretzky Estates. There is the same commitment to greatness. The understanding that it takes a team of truly passionate players to create world-class results. And the belief that a loonie buried in the ice can always bring a little extra luck.

September 19, 2020 Saturday Wedding Vow Renewal Ceremony

Kim and I are looking forward to attending. The dates are in our calendars. I am curious regarding SOB's not being invited. As you know several long time members have transitioned to SOB over the years and we still enjoy and look forward to their participation in the Ontario rally's. What makes the regional rally different?

As you know several long time members have transitioned to SOB over the years and we still enjoy and look forward to their participation in the Ontario rally's. What makes the regional rally different?

2 principal differences: 1) they often sell out, so an SOB might be keeping a Heartland owner from attending, and 2) Heartland funds the region rallies at a much, much higher level than chapter rallies.

Heartlanders, it is with sincere disappointment we announce the cancellation of the Canada-East Region Rally scheduled for September 2020. It is our strong belief this rally had the potential to be a great one and memorable in every sense.

To everyone who contacted us indicating their interest to attend, we thank you.

Niagara Falls, Canada is a gorgeous spot to visit and we encourage you to visit. Campark Resort will certainly meet all your camping needs for any size Heartland rig.

Thank you for your understanding.
