Free rides will be offered to all Maid of the Mist passengers on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 25 and 26, with boats operating for two additional days as the season in New York is extended.

“This is an opportunity for us to thank everyone for the strong, local, grassroots effort that encouraged, supported and motivated us to keep the Maids running for years to come,” said James V. Glynn, Chairman and CEO of the Maid of the Mist Corp. “We are also grateful for the tremendous assistance from Governor Cuomo, New York State Parks, New York Power Authority, elected officials and other entities, that has been vital to the construction of our new drydock and maintenance facility, which will soon be completed.”

On Friday, Oct. 25, the hours of operation out of Niagara Falls State Park will be 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday.

The season was originally scheduled to end on both sides of the border on Oct. 24.
