If there is one thing to see at this year’s Los Angeles County Fair, it is definitely the aerial high wire show “Pirates of the Columbian Caribbean,” performed by the Murcias family.

In front of rows of wooden benches is a very large pirate ship and a revolving contraption that appears to be two skulls and crossbones.

At each end of the crossbones is a large metal wheel that remains stationary while the entire contraption spins.

Two of the male acrobats stand on the inside of the wheel, while two other actors begin to spin them.

As both wheels spin, the acrobats revolve, similar to a mouse running in a wheel.

“I thought for sure one of them was going to fall,” Allison Goodwin, a Cal State San Bernardino senior, said.
