In the late ‘40s, long before the Magic Kingdom, stunt swimmer and attraction promoter Newt Perry spearheaded the development of one of Florida’s oldest and most beloved roadside attractions: Weeki Wachee Springs, the City of Mermaids. Take a trip to the park with award-winning author and historian Dr. Lucinda Vickers on June 6th at 7 p.m. in Rose History Auditorium. Dr. Vickers’s lecture, complete with vintage photos and videos from Weeki Wachee’s past, is sure to spark your imagination, if only for an evening.
