As the wire goes up at 6pm Tuesday Night, there is no turning back for Nik Wallenda and his historic wire-walk across the mouth of the Horseshoe Falls. Niagara Falls is gearing up for the event and bearing down for the expected 100,000 people.
The event has been finalized to begin just after 10pm on Friday, June 15, 2012. The wire is 550m, Wallenda has estimated it will take him about 40-50 minutes to complete the walk. The two-inch thick cable will run from Goat Island, NY to Table Rock, ON. Fireworks will begin upon Wallenda’s completion.
