The Steele County Free Fair has announced that David Smith Jr - The Human Cannonball will return this year to be launched over the midway once again!

Smith continues to be a big draw with large crowds forming each time he blasts from the cannon. He has been a human cannonball for 11 years, following in the steps of his father. He has performed more than 5,000 cannon shots around the world. Smith is the highest flying human cannonball in the world. He and his family hold several world records.

Smith will launch at least twice per day, and three times on the weekend during the fair. The Steele County Fair runs August 12-17 in Owatonna. Click here for the latest edition of the Steele County Fair Barker newsletter.
