FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LEWISTON—The New York Power Authority (NYPA) will celebrate the season at its annual Spring Eggstravaganza Saturday, April 16, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at its Niagara Power Project’s admission-free visitors center, the Power Vista.

Activities include free photos with the bunny from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. plus crafts, face painting and a scavenger hunt throughout the day.

As a tribute to the Niagara Power Project’s 50th Anniversary Celebration, this year’s event will also feature a presentation in the Power Vista classroom on first power at the Niagara Power Project, which took place in 1961. First power is an important milestone in any power project’s construction as it recognizes the first time electricity is generated.

Guests are also invited to enjoy the Power Vista’s attractions, which include displays and interactive exhibits relating to the production of electricity, energy efficiency and the region’s history, while surrounded by spectacular views from the observation deck 350 feet above the Niagara River Gorge. Parking and admission at the Power Vista, located at 5777 Lewiston Road, Lewiston, is always free.
For more information, contact the Niagara Project Power Vista at 716-286-6661 or email npvista@nypa.gov
