Niagara Falls, N.Y. - A crowd has started to gather at Niagara Falls as daredevil Nik Wallenda prepares for his historic tightrope walk above the brink of the falls.
Wallenda is set to begin his stunt at about 10:15 p.m.
Conditions appear good leading up to the nationally televised walk. When he walks it should be in the low 60s with winds under 10 mph from the east, roughly at his back.
Cars lined the road into Goat Island as people jockeyed for good spots to watch Wallenda's 1,800-foot walk on a two-inch wire between the U.S. and Canada.
Around 4,000 people with tickets will get up close views of the walk.
13WHAM caught up with a family from Rochester who was lucky enough to get the tickets that were offered online.
"I'm so excited," Marianne Oehlbeck said with the Niagara Falls behind her Friday afternoon. "We've been looking forward to this since they announced it months ago."
13WHAM's Adam Chodak will have live reports throughout the afternoon and at 10 and 11 p.m.
You can watch the walk live on 13WHAM. ABC’s coverage begins at 8 p.m.
