He's at it again! Sarasota native and death defying aerialist Nik Wallenda is preparing to walk over U.S. 41 on a high wire without a tether next week. He'll walk from a crane at the bayfront, over the road (traffic will be stopped), to the top of a 15-story condo building. It should be very exciting! Nik is the one who wowed the world last summer when he walked over Niagara Falls on a thin high wire through mist and swirling winds. We all were so proud of that unbelievable feat! (I posted about it here.) And, prepare to hear a lot more about him in the coming months. He's going to walk over the Grand Canyon on live TV without a tether sometime in June. Crazy? Unbelievable? It's all part of the rich circus history in Sarasota. He was being interviewed by a local TV station about his latest plans when I snapped this pic. By the way, Nik is doing his walk next week to promote Circus Sarasota.
