Visa not required for stay less than 180 days.
Passport not required if you have a copy of your birth certificate and a valid drivers license with a picture ID.

Thought the VISA requirement was bogus for a vacation or personal visit. On the other hand, for a business requirement, I have gotten VISAs (up to 3-yr) when entering Canada with proper paperwork. Border Agent can initiate a work VISA for up to 3-yrs per NAFTA treaty.

I guess further explanation is required; this GTG is organized by the Ontario Crossfire Owners Club, Niagara Falls lies in the South Ontario region and this area is the home of the Southern Ontario Crossfire Owners group, hence the joke that passports and visas are required. Get it now?

I came to this rarely visited Forum to see the list of attendees, since none is visible on that shady social media site. But still no list here! Are we to trust a questionable French-Canadian to manage the list only on paper?

Despite misgivings, my hotel reservation was made weeks ago, and will attend, with companion.

Really looking forward to watching Paul go over in a barrel. Or will it be in a canoe?

I can't commit yet, I have only driven my Xfire for several weeks in Sept 2017 and it has been in storage for the winter, I will be returning to Michigan in mid April and checking out the car then to see if it and my wife are up to the trip.

If you have never been on the Maid of the Mist for a trip to the bottom of the Falls you are missing a really big spectacle. I have seen the Falls many times, from the top and from behind. Last time I went on the boat, WOW.
Also not to be missed when in the area is The Canadian Warplane Heritage museum at Mount Hope airport just south of Hamilton.
