    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Two months after making history, wirewalker Nik Wallenda will be back in Niagara Falls Wednesday.

    For an invite-only event at Bravo Pizzeria (7:30 p.m.), Wallenda will have a concrete impression made of his feet, to be placed in the daredevil exhibit at the newly-renovated Niagara Falls Museum.

    Wallenda’s walk across the falls on June 15 was the first such stunt in more than a century, and was a ratings smash for ABC, which devoted three hours of prime time coverage to the event. It was the network’s most-watched show on a Friday night in five years. In Canada, where the walk was shown on CTV, it was the biggest non-sports special ever broadcast during the summer. At 10:41 p.m., near the end of Wallenda’s 26-minute walk, nearly seven million Canadians were tuned in.
