The mild spring has had it's consequences on some crops around the Niagara Frontier, but it is good news for the Maid of the Mist Boat Tours who are opening their season early this year. Today is opening day for the franchise that will soon be taken over by the Canadian firm HornblowerCruises.

Hornblower is scheduled to take over the boat tours in 2014.
