Frances Gade celebrated the Big Fresno Fair and her 91st birthday with a bungee jump Monday afternoon.

This is the seventh time she's bungeed at the fair. It's a tradition she began on her 82nd birthday after surviving colon cancer.

Gade says doing the jump is still very exciting for her, but now gets a little nervous before each jump.

"I get so nervous because so many people are watching. I think Channel 30 has made a celebrity out of me."

She recommends it to anyone who isn't afraid of heights. And yes. She has plans on doing it again for her 92nd birthday.
