From the Niagara Gazette:
A number of visitors to the Niagara Falls State Park — some living within a day’s drive — were surprised to learn about Nik Wallenda’s plans to walk on a tightrope above the falls.
Virtually none had even heard that Wallenda, 33, has been given permission from the parks commission on both sides of the border to make the walk this year, possibly in late spring or early fall. Wallenda’s team and the event organizers have yet to decide on the date.
It suggests a local task force and Wallenda’s management team has a lot of work to do before the walk, scheduled for sometime later this summer.
