Nik Wallenda to Tightrope Walk over the Falls on June 15

Nikolas Wallenda. Born January 24, 1979 in Sarasota, Florida. A proud father of 3. Some would say he looks like your “everyday man”, but he certainly doesn’t act like it.

No “everyday man” would be confirmed to walk on a tightrope over Niagara Falls on June 15. The news was finally confirmed during a press conference this morning as Wallenda made the official statement from Niagara Falls.

Luckily, Wallenda has some practice. He has been making his living by performing extremely risky highrise daredevil stunts since he can remember. It was at the age of 4 when Nik’s family had him start practicing on a tightrope. Since then, he has grown to be a world-renowned performer. Currently, Wallenda and his wife Erendira own and operate Wallendas Inc, an entertainment company that puts on thrill shows across the globe. He and his wife also perform at Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus. But currently, Nik has his focus set on conquering the huge feat of walking across the incredible wonder of the world, the mighty Niagara Falls.

The Marriott on the Falls Hotel has one of the best views to watch the event from.  Or, you can watch it from the comfort of your own home — Just visit our webcam to see a live hi res online video feed of the Falls.
