The seventh-generation member of the Flying Wallendas, a circus act and daredevil stunt group, spent months getting the necessary permissions from Canada and the United States for the cross-border stunt.
Organizers told a news conference in Niagara Falls, Ont., Wednesday, the contracts have been signed and the date set.
Wallenda’s stunt will merge two pop culture traditions — his own family’s death-defying feats on the high wire and the daredevil acts at Niagara Falls that date back more than 100 years.
It took an act of the New York Legislature and persistent lobbying of Canadian parks officials to make Wallenda’s planned wire stunt a possibility.
Any words of support…(or “what are you thinking?” lol) to send to Nik before his walk?
Good luck, buddy!!
