Tightrope Walk Over The Niagara Gorge

Do you get dizzy at heights?  Can you imagine being at a treacherous height with no safety features…and doing it for fun!?

About 120 years ago, two such young lads from Clarksburg, Ontario accomplished several terrifying feats by walking over The Niagara Gorge on a tightrope.  One of them set a world record that has never been defeated.

All ages are encouraged to come out to hear local Grey-Bruce Boomer magazine writer, Linda Thorn, give her interactive presentation ‘Clarksburg’s Dynamic Duo’
