To kick-off the festival, a daredevil will perform an acrobatic routine while suspended from a helicopter 200 feet above the ground. The stunt will feature high-wire artist and acrobat Nik Wallenda, a direct descendent of the famous circus performers The Flying Wallendas.
The event is set for 4pm, with KidsFest beginning the following day and continuing through July 24.
The best place to see Wallenda’s stunt is at Echo Hollow Amphitheater inside the Silver Dollar City theme park.
Wallenda will also perform throughout KidsFest with his family in a new show titled “The Fabulous Wallendas! Famous Family Circus.”
