High wire walker to perform Atlantic City stunt

    Nick Wallenda’s job is cooler than yours.

    He’s a high wire walker and part of a family of acrobats, jugglers, clowns, aerialists, animal trainers and trapeze artists, and he’ll be in Atlantic City next week performing a daring stunt.
    The public can watch for free while Wallenda attempts to walk across the beach 1,500 feet in the air with no harness in 27 minutes. He and his family will also perform at the Tropicana Casino and Resorts next weekend.
