Height of excitement: tightrope walkers enthral Christmas shoppers
Six-year-old among family of high-wire performers delighting crowds in Kwun Tong mall
Europe's premier high-wire act, the Weisheit family, performed in the atrium of the APM mall in Kwun Tong on Christmas Eve.
One of the performers was only six years old.
The family of tightrope walkers has been thrilling crowds across the world for generations. The troupe was founded in Gotha in Germany in 1900 by Friedrich Wilhelm Weisheit, according to its website.
Dressed in festive red and Santa hats, they combined the latest technology with traditional tightrope acts.
