The busker festival will be downtown’s signature event. Live music will fill the streets as jugglers, stilt-walkers and buskers animate every street corner. Make your way to the main stage where you will dare to watch some of the most thrilling stunts this area has ever seen, including world renowned stunt master, Gene Sullivan of Evel Knievel fame.
World renowned daredevil Dean Sullivan will jump from a crane, over 300 feet in the air, with only a rope and without the benefit of a safety braking device. Days and times of his jumps will be posted on the “Schedule” page as they become available.
Don’t forget your dancing shoes! Friday will be host to some incredible local Niagara bands. Saturday you will experience the classic hits made famous by Ian Mitchell and The Bay City Rollers and Terry Sylvester of The Hollies. As if that weren’t enough, Niagara’s local businesses will be there offering you sidewalk sales, food, drinks and activities. So what are you doing this summer? Come out and celebrate old downtown with us at Daredevil Days, August 15th to the 17th on Queen Street in Niagara Falls.
