David Letterman and family were in Niagara Falls Saturday celebrating the ninth birthday of son Harry.
Letterman, wife Regina Lasko, Harry and a couple of his friends, browsed The Fury gift shop at Table Rock after riding the elevator up from the Journey Behind the Falls late in the morning.
“See anything you like?” Letterman asked the kids as they poked through the souvenirs.
The store was not busy and the group shopped in anonymity. Even the cashier did not seem to recognize the veteran comedian and host of Late Night on CBS.
Letterman chatted briefly to Bullet News and posed for a photograph.
Letterman said he has been to Niagara Falls “many times” and always has a “great time.”
“Ninth birthday, and here we are,” he said.
The family arrived at Niagara District Airport at about 10 a.m. They tried out The Fury, make a run through Pop & Lolly’s Candy Shop and headed over to the Skylon for lunch.
The agenda also included the White Water Walk and the Spanish Aero Car, where they were greetd by Mayor Jim Diodati and Niagara Parks Commission Chairwoman Janice Thomson. They flew back home to New York City at 4 p.m.
“Seeing people choose Niagara for important celebrations reminds us of what a wonderful destination we have,” Thomson said. “People in Niagara are excellent hosts and expert at sharing and showcasing our marvellous attractions.
“When celebrities choose Niagara parks for their getaway, it reinforces the reality that we do have a world-class offering.”
