Plaque commemorates Wallenda Niagara Falls walk

Nik Wallenda

NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (AP) —  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 Monday’s ceremony, along with dignitaries from the United States and Canada.

The ceremony will take place on Goat Island at Niagara Falls.

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.
