    Jumpers, climbers, fliers and more: Great daredevils of the last 100 years

    No Comments

    From NBCNews.com:

    This Sunday, daredevil Nik Wallenda — who famously traversed Niagara Falls on a tightrope last year — will attempt another extreme balancing act: walking a tightrope over the Grand Canyon. Wallenda carries on a family tradition with his tricks — he is the seventh generation of the “Great Wallendas,” a stunt-performing family. And he calls to mind daredevils past, who have shocked the public for more than 100 years with their daring feats (and failures.)

    Have you ever heard of “Niagara Falls Fudge Co”?

    I have been to, and eaten fudge from the Fudge Factory on Clifton Hill and the Hershey store on Falls Avenue. Until a few days ago, I had never heard of the Niagara Falls Fudge Co. The line under the name says “a second generation family tradition”. I assume they have moved from another location, as this sign wasn’t there a few weeks ago. They are part of the EconoLodge on Victoria Avenue.
