Hundreds of mermaids to attend Weeki Wachee anniversary

Weeki Wachee's famed mermaid show is celebrating the day with a
reunion and four different underwater shows. Among them is a grand finale featuring 16 current and former mermaids performing together for the first time.

The youngest to perform is 17-year-old Ashley Furlong. The
oldest is 76-year-old Dottie Meares.

Meares says she'll keep swimming till they won't let her
anymore. She's among a group of former mermaids who put on a show during Weeki Wachee's 50th reunion.

It proved so popular, the attraction has hosted a monthly Mermaids of Yesteryear show ever since.
