HUNTSVILLE, Ala - The Rocket City Fair arrives today, Thursday the 26th, at Joe Davis Stadium and it's sure to bring lots of thrills and excitement for the whole family. One of the performers from the fair took some time out with Michelle Stark and Ben Smith to show them why the Rocket City Fair will be so much fun.

Kristen Johnson is known as "Lady Houdini" to her audience.  She was given this name in 2012 after she broke the immortal Harry Houdini`s record for the most Water Torture Cell escapes ever performed, which historians and magic aficionados worldwide estimate to be just over one thousand. Johnson and her stunt coordinator, Kevin Ridgeway, put Ben Smith to the test of "how did they do that?"

Lady Houdini and other performers will be at the Rocket City Fair opening tonight, Thurs May 26th, until Mon May 30th at Joe Davis Stadium. Tickets are $7 for adults, $5 for kids and, children age 4 and under are free. You can purchase tickets at the gate, but there are discount tickets that can be picked up around town.
