Q: Our granddaughter will be visiting us for a week. Last year there was a tightrope walker performing for free in Niagara Falls. Could you please let me know if he is performing this year?

A: He sure is. Daredevil tightrope walker extraordinaire Jay Cochrane is performing his Jay Cochrane Skywalk at Skylon Tower now through September 3. Known as the "Prince of Air,"

Cochrane is scheduled to make two daily walks on the high wire at 4 pm and 8 pm seven days per week. This mind freak walk is over 300 metres on a high wire between two 20-storey towers at Skylon Tower and the Fallsview Casino Resort. When he's done he makes a personal appearance and signs autographs in the Skylon Tower lobby.
