NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WIVB) - A veteran actor and screenwriter visited the Cataract City promoting
another type of venture Saturday.
Dan Aykroyd visited Supermarket Liquors and Wines on Niagara Falls Boulevard.
They're selling Crystal Head Vodka, one of several alcoholic products the Canadian has developed over the years.
To commemorate the event, Mayor Paul Dyster gave the "Blues Brothers" co-star the key to the City.
Dan Aykroyd said, "Niagara Falls is one of the unpolished gems of American architecture. The downtown of Niagara Falls is beautiful as a lot of the old office buildings from the '30s. Of course some of the infrastructure having to do with the power dams here, still in existence. In Canada we say we have the longer Falls and maybe the prettier ones. But I think the city of Niagara Falls New York is, a little prettier than Niagara Falls Canada."
Aykroyd also signed posters for the upcoming, Fourth Annual Niagara Falls Blues Festival.
