Seeing Erendira Wallenda's stunt in person: what you need to know

Posted at 5:45 AM, Jun 15, 2017

Erendira Walldena will hang from her toes and her teeth over the raging waters of Niagara Falls...and you're invited to witness history!

The stunt is slated for 8:30 a.m. and will last for about ten minutes. Wallenda will hang from a lyra, or a hula-hoop shaped ring, from a helicopter hovering 300 feet over Horseshoe Falls.

She'll perform tricks and dance moves, at points during the performance she will hang from her toes and her teeth. 

If you want to come see the stunt in person, you're encouraged to arrive no later than 8:15 a.m. The best view of the stunt will be from Terrapin Point at Niagara Falls State Park.

You can park in lot #2, closest to the Top of the Falls restaurant. Parking will be free before 9 a.m. but if you stay later, parking costs $10 per car.

State parks officials say your blankets and lawn chairs probably aren't needed because the stunt will be short. 

No additional security, like metal detectors, will be put in place for visitors to the park on the morning of the stunt.
