    Twiggy, the world’s only Water-skiing Squirrel is in town. A mini Megastar, Twiggy’s big-screen resume features films such as Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story and Anchorman: the Legend of Ron Burgundy, and she is set to make appearances in Louisville this week. 

    Though her custom-made lifejacket prohibits her from signing autographs, Twiggy will be onboard to entertain you Wednesday through Sunday at the Louisville Boat, RV and Sportshow, sponsored by Progressive.

    While Twiggy may represent the main event, the Sportshow features many other activities showgoers may peruse to bide time between water-skiing spectacles.

    Hunting, fishing, and boat/RV repair seminars are scheduled throughout the five-day run.

    Kids can join in the minnow races, learn how to shoot a bow and arrow, and hang out with Patrick Star (of SpongeBob fame) this weekend. 

    All this, and enough new boats and RVs to make Daniel Boone drool in his grave.

    The Louisville Boat, RV and Sportshow runs Wednesday, Jan. 25 through Sunday, January 29th at the Kentucky Exposition Center. Tickets are $10 for adults (16+), $8 for seniors (60+), and free for active military and children 15 and under. Parking is $8.

    Tickets can be purchased online, at area Kroger stores (for a $2 discount) or at the show.
