Wallenda Walks Over US 41 in Sarasota
Sarasota is quite a festive little city. There is always something exciting happening in the downtown area. This morning, Nik Wallenda of circus aerialist fame attempts to walk on a high wire from the Unconditional Surrender, sometimes called the Kissing Sailor statute, to the roof of Marina Tower. Streets in the area will be blocked off for over an hour and spectators are encourage to walk to the event or take the roundtrip “free” trolley from the Van Wezel Hall of Performing Arts parking lot.
Wallenda is a six time Guinness World Record holder and walked across Niagara Falls last year. The walk scheduled for today will be 200 feet over U.S. 41. Wallenda is being allowed to do this walk without a tether.
Downtown businesses plan to have a great day, and many are offering specials for visitors. A crowd of thousands is expected, and the weather is gorgeous here in Sarasota, Florida. Known for its warm climate and sunny white sand beaches, the city’s cultural environment is outstanding and rival to many major cities.
