Nik Wallenda’s High Wire Walk at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Baltimore – A Photo Album
BALTIMORE – (May 11, 2012) - World-renown high wire walker Nik Wallenda walked across the Baltimore Harbor on May 9 as part of the announcement that Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Odditorium was coming to Baltimore’s Light Street Pavilion in the Inner Harbor. He walked from the front of Ripley’s, which is expected to open in early June, 300 feet out over the harbor to a 100 foot tall crane parked on a barge off Pier One. Prior to the walk, Ripley’s President Jim Pattison Jr greeted the gathered crowd of Baltimore media and VIPs in front of the future Odditorium. Tyler Fyre, decked out in a bright red suit, was the MC for the day and swallowed a few swords and ate a little fire to entertain the crowd, estimated at 10,000-plus as they waited for the historic Wallenda walk.
