A History of One of Florida's Oldest Roadside Attractions
Lu Vickers and Sara Dionne narrate the story of the Weeki Wachee Spring mermaids from the attractions' opening on October 12, 1947, until present day.
With over 100 color photos and 153 black and white photos of the mermaids and the park, readers can well understand the popularity over its six decades of entertainment. A real Florida favorite!
