Nik Wallenda To Be Honored In NY

07.07.14 | Sarah Harnisch

A plaque is being dedicated to mark daredevil Nik Wallenda's 2012 high-wire walk over Niagara Falls. Wallenda and his family are expected to attend today's ceremony at Goat Island in Niagara Falls, along with dignitaries from the United States and Canada. Wallenda became the first person to walk over the brink of Niagara Falls when he accomplished the feat on national television in June 2012. The Sarasota, Florida, resident is spending his summer in western New York, performing with his family at Darien Lake amusement park.
