NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WKBW) — Due to the potential for rain in the area the Skydive Niagara event scheduled for Tuesday has been postponed to Wednesday.

Wednesday evening five skydivers will leap out of a plane over the Horseshoe Falls at 14,000 feet before soaring to a landing in the parking lot of the Sheraton Hotel at Third and Niagara Streets.

It's part of the first-ever Skydive Niagara Event to raise the profile of the American side of the Falls.

An after-party with live music will follow on Old Falls Street.

The skydiving event is set to begin at 6 p.m.
