NIAGARA FALLS – The Maid of the Mist will open for the season at 10 a.m. Saturday, the company announced today.

The company, which launched its boats on Tuesday, also announced mothers will be able to ride the attraction for free on Sunday for Mother’s Day. The offer is in honor of Chairman James Glynn’s 80th birthday.

While the season’s start has come earlier in the last two years, the average start date since 1948 has been May 8, according to the company.
