Spring weather is on the horizon in Western New York! Sure, there is a bit of rain expected for the remainder of this week, but once it clears up, it will be perfect for an outdoor walk. Maybe you will even catch sight of a rainbow!
Perhaps the most famous rainbow, and one sure place you can always find one in Western New York, is hiding in Niagara Falls. The way the sunlight hits the waterfall just right makes a rainbow in the Falls, if you are looking carefully.
Though that’s not the only thing “hiding” in Niagara Falls.
“Does anyone know what this big boulder-looking thing might be?? I have never seen this before, but I think it might be ice?” one person wrote on Facebook.
While the “boulder” did end up being confirmed to be ice, Western New Yorkers chimed in with some hilarious comments about other things that this “boulder” could potentially be.

Relive the Glen Amusement Park and Casino
There are parts of Western New York that you never knew existed, and one of those places may be the Glen Amusement Park and Casino.
If you can’t remember an amusement park at this location in Williamsville, that may be because Harry Altman’s Glen Amusement Park and Casino, a center of attractions for western NYers, was destroyed by a massive fire September 1968. A fire destroyed the park in September 1968.
Thankfully, Ron Urban, who grew up in WNY and lived inside the Glen Amusement Park and Casino complex, has held onto photographs from as far back as 1946 when he lived in that childhood home, along the banks of Ellicott Creek and located below the falls.
Even if you weren't able to see the Glen Amusement Park and Casino in person, now you can relive the memory of this historic part of WNY -- all thanks to Ron Urban and the photographs he has kept over the years.
