It is unclear what is planned for attendees once dropped off in Niagara Falls, but the bus is expected to host live entertainment for patrons. 

The event is planning to return all patrons to their respective communities by 3:00 a.m., Niagara Police told Narcity.*

"This is not in accordance with COVID-19 regulations," wrote Niagara Police. "We are investigating."
