SARASOTA – In just a few days we’ll find out when Sarasota's own Nik Wallenda will walk on a tightrope over the Grand Canyon.

The daredevil has tweeted that he will announce the date of that next feat on Monday.

ABC 7 was the only media that talked to Wallenda as he walked over Sarasota's bayfront in January.

Shortly after his walk over Niagara Falls in 2012, Wallenda made his intention clear for the Grand Canyon walk, where he says he will not use a harness.

We'll update you on his big announcement on Monday.
