Walking a tightrope… across the Grand Canyon

June 21, 2013

We are no strangers to stunts here at the L.A. County Fair. At Esmeralda’s Traveling Circus it’s common to see trapeze artists flying through the air and men juggling flaming bowling pins and hula hoops. But that doesn’t mean we don’t take notice when something fabulous happens outside of our circus zone!
This Sunday, tightrope artist Nik Wallenda is performing the breath-taking stunt of walking a tightrope across the Grand Canyon.1,500 feet above the Little Colorado River. (That’s a height taller than the Empire State Building, folks.)  No harness. Just guts and skill.

You can watch his act live on the Discovery Channel on Sunday, June 23 at 5 p.m.
