Good Day Atlanta Viewer: June 19, 2015

Rabun County Commemorates 45th Anniversary of "Skywalk." It's a day many in North Georgia will never forget. On July 18, 1970, Karl Wallenda wire-walked across Tallulah Gorge, thrilling a crowd estimated at 30,000 and drawing international attention to Rabun County. Now, 45 years later, that amazing feat is being celebrated with a 10-day festival of food, music, and outdoor adventures.The Tallulah Gorge Skywalk Celebration 2015 kicks off Friday, June 19th with a public meet-and-greet with Nik Wallenda (Karl's great-grandson) and an evening concert featuring Grammy-nominated country music artist T. Graham Brown. The next several day will include special restaurant tastings, wine tours, and drama and music performances. A Grand Finale concert on Saturday, June 27th will feature a concert and aerial show with special guests including Vince Gill.
