“When it’s your time, you are going to die, no matter what you’re doing,” says Carla.

BREVARD COUNTY • VIERA, FLORIDA – At an age when most people worry about tripping in the bathtub, Carla Wallenda is flying high atop a thin, wavering pole 120 feet up in the air.

It takes unbridled fearlessness to swing from the top of that pole or to stand on your head way up there, so far away from the safety of the earth.

Attempting that feat on a daily basis, with absolutely no safety devices, when you’re 80 years old is nothing short of jaw-dropping amazing.

“When it’s your time, you are going to die, no matter what you’re doing,” says Carla.

Wallenda, currently on the second half of her eighth decade, does just that for a living. At the upcoming Space Coast State Fair, Wallenda will clamber up to the 120-foot pole not once, but several times a day.

WALLENDA-180-5If the wind was cooperating, she would stand on her head. If it wasn’t, she would merely swing from the top with just a handmade grip standing between her and eternity.

Walenda will perform her thrilling daredevil aerialist routine during the Palm Bay Fair, which is being held through next Sunday on the sprawling grounds of Space Coast Harley Davidson, right next door to the Bass Pro Shop.
