Things get "squirrelly" at the boat show

Twiggy out dazzles luxury yachts

STATE FAIR PARK-Lots of folks dreaming, some folks buying, still many more dreaming of buying.

Impressive turnout for the Milwaukee Boat Show at State Fair Park which runs through this weekend.

The show docked in West Allis last weekend and has drawn steady crowds. Even for a weeknight on Tuesday there was steady of foot traffic.

Experienced buyers say they are finding some deals. Organizers say there's something for every body's price range.

A big draw is "Twiggy" the water skiing squirrel, up from Florida on a world tour that includes Qatar later this year.

Twiggy's owner says it began as a joke 33 years ago, and that it takes an average of one year to train a squirrel to water ski.

Twiggy performs at 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. every night.

The Milwaukee Boat Show runs 3 p.m.-9p.m. weeknights.

This Friday it opens at noon. Saturday and Sunday doors open at 10 a.m.

It's $9 for adults and kids 12 and under free with a paying adult.
