A world famous high-wire performer brings his skills to Maryland.

Nik Wallenda is scheduled to walk across a cable between the two buildings at National Harbor in Prince George's County.

The buildings are 230 feet apart from each other and the cable will sit 75 feet in the air. 

Wallenda holds 10 Guinness World Records.

There will be no tether, no harness, no safety net and the cable that he'll be walking across has the same diameter as a nickel.

The event starts at 8 a.m.
