      City of Niagara kicks off centennial celebration

      The City of Niagara has officially turned 100-years-old.

      Thursday, they had a ribbon cutting to kick-off the centennial celebration. Area community members gathered for the ceremony. Local and state officials were on hand to recognize the milestone for the community.

      The old mill blow horn sounded for the official kick-off.

      "What we want to get across is we want to welcome everybody into the area, into the community, people from outside, too," says George Bousley, Mayor of Niagara. "People from Norway, Iron Mountain, Kingsford, the surrounding areas have helped out a lot."

      The centennial celebration runs through this weekend. Admission buttons can be purchased at the event.
