NIAGARA FALLS, ONT (WKBW) - Nik Wallenda arrived in Western New York and met with hundreds of fans on Wednesday, signing autographs in Niagara Falls, Ontario.

Earlier in the day, the daredevil joined Josh Elliott and Sam Champion on ABC's Good Morning America.

Wallenda is expected to spend the next few days leading up to his historic tightrope walk promoting the event and resting for the big day. He is staying at the Seneca Niagara Casino.

The 1,800 foot, 7.5 ton cable was installed early Wednesday morning.
