Twiggy’s show features her waterskiing in a small pool using a remote control boat. Twiggy has become very popular among a variety of audiences, and is especially a crowd favorite at the Marion County Fair. Twiggy has a bigger message than just a fun show, however. Twiggy also promotes water safety practices to children and never water skis without her squirrel-sized life jacket.

This opportunity to see Twiggy is even more special, as this is part of Twiggy’s retirement tour. After this year, Twiggy will be hanging up her life jacket to live a relaxing life with her owner after 39 years of performances. This could be the last chance for those in Marion County to see Twiggy water ski.

Twiggy’s performances will be at the Marion County Fairgrounds, 300 East Troy Avenue, located just east of I-465 & Southeastern Avenue interchange. Gates open at 5 p.m. on weekdays and 12 noon on weekends. General Admission to the grounds is $5 per person; children 5 and under are free, military members with a valid ID are free, and parking is free in convenient fairground lots.

General admission fair tickets can be purchased online at https://marioncountyfair.org/fair/tickets-coupons/. For more information about Marion County Fair pricing, visit www.marioncountyfair.org.
