Galaxy Girl

Galaxy Girl has been called the newest extreme action superhero, and for obvious reasons!

Galaxy Girl begins her act by climbing an eighty foot ladder high in the air before performing an incredible aerial gymnastic routine from a trapeze dangling eighty feet above the ground - with no safety nets or devices.

Next, after asking the audience if they'd like her to climb higher, she begins her perilous climb to the 127-foot sway pole towering above the ground. As she arrives on the Aerial Space Platform atop the sway pole, the pole sways and bends drastically to near breaking, but Galaxy Girl retains her balance to perform a handstand on the very peak of the pole. To return to the earth's surface, Galaxy Girl gracefully slides down a cable in her "Slide for Life".


Strolling around the fairground, and also performing on stage, are the Agri-Puppets, who through their unique style, educate people young and old about the world around us. It's fun for all the family!
