It is with sad news I announce one of Orlando’s most popular residents, “Twiggy” – the water skiing squirrel, is set to retire this weekend. However Orlando Weekly is reporting, there are still a few chances to see her perform!
If you have plans to stop by the Orlando Boat Show happening next weekend, you can see one of “Twiggy’s” final appearances. Twiggy will take to her skis at the show on Saturday, August 18 at noon, 2pm, 4pm, and 6pm. Then, on Sunday, August 18, Twiggy will do her swan song at 11am, 1pm, and 3pm.
“Twiggy” has been a popular attraction for Central Florida residents and tourists for several years. “Twiggy” has not actually been just one squirrel over the years but many squirrels have stepped up to fill the large water skis. (Similar to “Shamu” at Sea World) A new “Twiggy” should step up in the future to take over the position. So, next weekend might not be the last chance to see “Twiggy” after all!
