Nik Wallenda, Niagara Falls officials prepare for June high-wire crossing

From the Cleveland Plain Dealer:

The dramatic beauty of Niagara Falls has long shared its stage with powerful episodes of human drama — from drenching rides on the Maid of the Mist to suicidal jumpers.

The stage gets bigger next month, as aerialist Nik Wallenda attempts to become the first person in more than a century to cross the falls on a high wire.

The eyes of the world will be watching — the Friday, June 15, event will be televised live from 8-11 p.m. on ABC– and the tourism hopes of a region will be riding on the dramatic event.
