Falls aims to build on wire-walk momentum

More than 13 million people around the globe tuned in June 15 to watch Nik Wallenda walk across Niagara Falls, and many say the thundering waterfalls has never looked better.

“It’s in the forefront of people’s minds at this point, and that’s the best time to capture people’s attention—either a developer or tourist,” said John Percy, president and chief executive of the Niagara Tourism and Convention Corp. “This is the time to capitalize on that.”
