Sarasota's very own daredevil, Nik Wallenda, is planning to tight rope the Grand Canyon in June.
He announced the news on his Facebook page Monday. Wallenda says he will make the walk June 23, and Discovery Channel will broadcast it live.
Wallenda will walk across without a harness. It was required when he walked successfully across Niagra Falls, going against the tradition of his family.
Wallenda, 34, was born and raised in Sarasota. Just a few months ago he walked a high wire across U.S. 41.
