Jay Cochrane Wirewalking Niagara Falls in Canada
Niagara Falls 2007
Up Close and Personal
This is your chance to meet Jay Cochrane and learn about his life walking in the sky.
Returning to Niagara Falls for the third summer in six years, Jay Cochrane's twice daily skywalks are designed to bring his performances "up close and personal."
The 2007 summer skywalks begin June 30th at 4pm with the second show at 8pm. Over the 10 week schedule, ending September 3, Jay will walk over 15 miles and spend almost 3 full days atop the wire. Jay's skywalks are between his specially designed 200 foot (20 stories) towers spaced 1,000 feet apart near the Skylon Tower will take between 20 to 30 minutes to complete. With the majestic falls as the backdrop, his performances are set to music and Jay interacts with the crowds via microphone from atop the high wire.
Following each show, the Skylon Tower hosts Cochrane in its Jay Cochrane Dare Devil Gallery, where he will sign autographs and talk to fans about his "storied" career.
The Gallery will feature memorabilia from his numerous skywalks, including items from the greatest skywalk ever, his 1995 world record walk above the Yangtze River in Qutang Gorge, China. His career has taken him over such locations as the arch in St. Louis, the Peace River in Taiwan, the Pearl of the Orient Tower in Shanghai, and glittering Las Vegas. He holds numerous records for his feats. Jay will be accepting donations in support of the local Niagara Tender Wishes Foundation.
