Niagara Falls, N.Y. - Nik Wallenda is two days away from trying to make history by walking across the Niagara Falls.
Businesses there are thankful for the extra visitors.
Aune Jamison works at a gift shop at the Falls and is selling pictures of Wallenda.
She expects business to be up 70 percent on Friday.
"It's picking up now and how great the weather is, it's even better," Jamision said.
A few visitors 13WHAM spoke with at the Falls Wednesday said it was exciting to see where Wallenda will make his historic attempt.
"Nik's a very brave man and Wallendas are experts at what they do on the high wire and it's exciting to be near this," said Norman Webster who was visiting from Tennesee.
"Because if we see it on tv, now we're gonna know how they stretch the cable...exactly what he's doing," Catherine Webster of Tennessee said.
Even the locals are happy Niagara Falls and the area are getting attention.
"It's actually kind of nice because our town is kind of, there isn't much that goes on in Niagara Falls," said Jennifer Harvey of Niagara Falls.
Tickets to see Friday's high-wire attempt were snatched up in minutes when they were offered June 1.
About 4,000 people will get to see Wallenda in person try to walk to Canada over Niagara Falls.
Those who reserved tickets must show a photo ID to redeem a wristband on Friday.
Parking will be limited so people are encouraged to get there early.
If you don't have a ticket, there will big screen televisions on Old Falls Street, just outside the State Park, and also at the Cave of the Winds.
ABC has exclusive live coverage of Friday's walk beginning on 13WHAM at 8 p.m.
