Bridge Day is a BIG event in
Here I am ........
Picture of bridge under construction.
The first Bridge Day was celebrated in 1980 when only 5 BASE jumpers jumped off the bridge. Today they expected 450 jumpers.
Jumpers getting their parachutes ready.
It is 876 feet high and 8 seconds from the bridge to the water below.
One taking off.....
Our parents used to say to us as kids, "If so and so jumped off a bridge, would you do it too?" Well apparently for these jumpers, the answer was yes.
An annual, spectacular event held the 3rd Saturday of October for a majestic bridge.
Were you at the bridge today walking across? If not, I hope my pictures helped transport you there.
