Chippawa Lions Club cancels annual carnival

A 75 year tradition has come to an end in Niagara Falls.

The Chippawa Lions Club is cancelling its annual carnival.

Club members say they are deeply disappointed but had to cancel the popular event after finding out the amusement company that supplied the rides was closing down.

The club tried to find a new operator for the June carnival but failed.

The carnival has been a fixture in Chippawa since 1941.
