There have always been daredevils and stuntmen drawing crowds to the Niagara Falls such as Nik Wallenda, and the late Jay Cochrane, who would walk a wire between the Hilton Hotel and the Skylon Tower, but those events while bringing in the masses, never lapsed over an entire Summer like the 2nd year of the Niagara Summer of Thrills will do!
From July 2nd until September 7th, 2015, the whole family is welcome to attend these FREE shows daily (excluding Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s) throughout the Summer. Click HERE for details
