A Welcome Home for a Sarasota Daredevil
It may have rained on Nik Wallenda’s parade but it didn’t dampen the spirits and enthusiasm of supporters who came out to welcome the daredevil home to Sarasota, Fla., following last month’s high wire walk across the Grand Canyon.
It wasn’t specifically his parade, it was the Offshore Super Boat Grand Prix‘s Festival Parade of Boats down Sarasota’s Main Street, but the timing couldn’t be more perfect. Wallenda led the procession of gnarly watercraft while sitting in a green Mustang convertible.
The Voice of Sarasota (when speaking with media about the June 23 Grand Canyon walk, did you hear him mention how he trained in his hometown of Sarasota?) waved to supporters with one hand as he held a really big umbrella with the other. His family was also in the parade along with performers from Sailor Circus (student circus) and Circus Sarasota (the area’s resident, non-profit circus).
Enjoy the photos below of Wallenda’s homecoming.
