Florida Humanities Council and Ormond Beach Historical Society present "Weeki Wachee: City of Mermaids".
When Newt Perry sank a theater into Weeki Wachee Spring in 1947 and filled the water with mermaids, he probably had no idea that they would become world famous. Using vintage photos and videos, author Lu Vickers will show how Perry developed his underwater dream at Silver Springs and Wakulla before founding Weeki Wachee. Coffee will be served at 9:30 a.m.
