The 1940s Mermaid Show That's Still Pulling Crowds
The Weeki Wachee mermaids were magical creatures to me as a child, even though I was old enough to know they were real women. Women with awesome jobs, in my eyes. But I did not realize they were still putting on shows three times a day in 2018! Tom Scott takes us on a tour of Weeki Wachee Springs State Park in Florida, and gives us the history of the famous mermaid show.
