You can't go anywhere in Western New York without hearing about Nik Wallenda's Summer High Wire Walk over Niagara Falls, but it appears it will take center stage nationally as well.

In advance of the event Wallenda's training practices are open to the public from 10:30 a.m until Noon and 3:30 p.m. until 5 p.m. everyday at the Seneca Niagara Casino in Niagara Falls until May 22nd.
