I buy the cheap jello on sale for the carp bait and the good stuff for myself. We ate a lot of jello coming up. Two “recipes”, Lime jello with pineapple in it, and my mom’s specialty, orange jello with about a pound of shredded carrots in it. Always made in a large glass baking dish. At Christmas, my dad would get tuned up and we would make a large Jello salad. About three boxes of jello, sliced apples, sliced bananas, green grapes, a can of cherries, and black walnuts picked out of the nuts in the back yard. Then we would float mini marshmallows on the top. That was a holiday treat. We made it in a rose tinted, fluted glass bowl. Everything set up at a different level, I guess it was my first lesson in specific gravity.

A friend called today and the campground is not taking any new reservations for now. They also reported having a lot of cancellations.
Fingers crossed I guess.
The rally is well after Labor Day and hopefully the border will be reopened and things will ease up by then. Sure hope so.

Hi: WaltP... Thanks for the info. Things are cautiously starting to open up here in Ontario. Tourist areas look to be the last on the list. I don't know what the rally will look like this year? Camping at best!!! This pandemic sure lends a new meaning to "Keep your distance".

Hi Alf... with this covid-19 going on, my charity ride has been postponed to September... guess what weekend? The same as the rally!!! So not sure we can make it this year as I missed the charity ride last year due to health reasons. Don't count us out just yet though! Going to see what I can wrangle so I can do both if possible.

UPDATE as of July 07!!!

Hi: All... At present Niagara Wine Escape is on, but in a much modified form. No potluck dinner, beer/wine exchange. No day visitors allowed into the park to view trailers and any doors open allowed only at the discretion of the owners. We will have a socially distanced campfire at site 52, and other groups may have one too. Doesn't matter which side of the fire you sit on you will get smoked!!! Wear a mask if you feel more comfortable with one on.
Niagara board of health has let the Riverside CG. open... BUT NOT THE WASHROOMS. The border is still closed to cross border travel except for business.
This will change as Ontario opens up!!!

Rally

We have not contacted Celia regarding our reservations but itís starting to look pretty iffy for US citizens being able to attend the rally. One of the ironic twists is the restroom closing at Riverside Campground. This is probably the cleanest restroom Iíve ever used in a campground and Iíve camped a lot of places. The little plastic triangle on the floor warning of a wet, just mopped floor seems to be always there because someone always seems to be cleaning. Immaculate. Best description.
That said, the sewer hookup sites allow most escapes and many others to have everything they need right at their site.
If things go off the way Alf has described there will still be fun to be had.
Keeping fingers crossed

Hi Alf... looks like we won't be able to come this year, but I'll call Celia and have her reserve our site for the following year (2021).

If the borders open, we’d love to attend this Rally! Does anyone know the cancellation policy if we booked now but needed to cancel if the borders remain closed?

Last I knew the campground owner was not accepting reservations from US citizens because nobody knows how long the border will be closed.

UPDATE as of Aug. 07

Hi: All... Calling all Canadian campers!!! The WASHROOMS are now open. One shower and two toilets/sink basins on each side for social distancing. Celia has asked for people to call for Rez's. They have spaces available.
As the song goes... "See you in September". Bring masks and hand sanitizer for your comfort.
