The first in a series of test walks was performed by daredevil Nik Wallenda Saturday morning.
Wallenda strode a wire that was strung between a pair of cranes outside of the Seneca Niagara Casino. He is preparing for his scheduled high-wire walk above Niagara Falls next month. The practice run drew hundreds of onlookers, many who came early to get a good spot for watching the spectacle. The Buffalo News reports that Wallenda is planning to hold two practice sessions every day through May 22, both morning and afternoon walks.
