374--Florida: Weeki Wachee Mermaid Show

Weeki Wachee Springs is not just another splashy Florida roadside attraction. Weeki Wachee has been doing Mermaid Shows since 1947 so next year (2007) will be its 60th Anniversary. Thank you mermaids for helping us believe in the magic of fantasy! Over the past 6 decades you have swam into the hearts of millions!

The mermaids at Weeki Wachee come in all shapes and sizes, but they have one thing in common—they are all young at heart! One a month the “former mermaids” perform on a volunteer basis. These inspirational ladies believe that: “Once a mermaid, always a mermaid”.

Did you know that Weeki Wachee Springs is one of the smallest cities in the world—with a population of 9? And the mayor is a former mermaid!

The mermaids at Weeki Wachee sing:
“We’re not like other women, We don’t have to clean an oven,
And we never will grow old, We’ve got the world by the tail!”

Accept no imitations! Come to Weeki Wachee and let the famous fairies of the sea delight and entertain you.
