    From Niagara This Week:

    Watching a video of Luke and Emma Jasnich, it’s clear they two kids have an unbridled enthusiasm about all things Niagara.

    And that enthusiasm resulted in Luke, 9, and Emma, 7, playing host to singer/dancer Jordan Francis for a one-day tour of the region’s fun spots, including stops at the Butterfly Conservatory, The Niagara Skywheel and Journey Behind the Falls in Niagara Falls as well as Lock 1 of the Welland Canal in and the beach at Port Dalhousie St. Catharines and the a family cottage at Pleasant Beach on Lake Erie.

    “I really, really enjoyed it. I liked it all,” Luke said.

    Those same sentiments were echoed by Emma.

    “All of it,” she said when asked about what she enjoyed about her day showing Francis the sights.

    The experience for the St. Catharines kids and their family was all being filmed for television for a show dubbed Cross Country Fun Hunt

    From the Buffalo News:

    The date for Nik Wallenda’s tightrope walk across Niagara Falls will be decided in the next two weeks after negotiations with major television networks, Wallenda’s manager said Friday.

    Wallenda’s management team is in “very deep discussions” with the networks, which have expressed interest in filming the 1,800-foot walk across the Niagara Gorge and preceding training sessions.

    “We’re hoping for a two-hour prime-time special that will essentially star two major outlets: Nik and Niagara Falls,” manager Winston Simone said at a marketing meeting held in Niagara County’s Center for Economic Development.

    Chills & Thrills! Icy illusion being taped near Falls Thursday

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Wanna be on TV? Bundle up and head down to Table Rock Thursday.

    Weather pending, a major illusion for an upcoming CBC magic special will be filmed at 7:30 p.m.

    Producers are being tightlipped about details, but it involves a local magician performing a huge (and dangerous) feat down by the falls involving fire, a giant icicle, a straitjacket, and a few surprises.

    How dangerous? Anyone under 18 is asked not to attend because of the intense nature.

    I don’t have any inside information, but this has to be another thing that Greg Frewin is doing. Unfortunately I won’t be able to get down there myself, but I’ll walk down there at lunch and take a picture of the setup.
