Saturday, some fans had the chance to see the daredevil in person.
At a meet and greet, at Edgewater's Restaurant in Niagara Falls, Ont., several of Wallenda's biggest fans were able to get autographs and take pictures with the man of the hour
"It's almost like a dream," said Niagara Falls resident Ken Sporar. "It was so inspiring last night and we were headed out to the lake on Niagara, heard he was here, turned around and came back got his autograph. It was awesome."
Some fans were able to ask Wallenda a few questions, like what he did to celebrate after the walk.
"I slept all night for the first time in three months," Wallenda answered. "It was a late night we actually got back to the hotel and I had dinner with my close friends who were here and family and that finished around 2:30 in the morning."
