An all time crowd favorite, Twiggy the Water Skiing Squirrel is back again for the 2014 show. Also joining us this year is an amazing group of talented dogs, The Marvelous Mutts. You won't believe the things these dogs can do! Show times for these two acts are shown below.

* The Marvelous Mutts

The Marvelous Mutts, A Canine Spectacular, is a thrilling dog sport entertainment show that showcases some of the world’s finest canine athletes. The dogs amaze audiences as they flip and fly to snatch flying discs out of the air, race through obstacle courses with breathtaking speed, and launch themselves off a dock to catch a toy before it splashes into a pool of water. Spectators, children and adults alike, always leave our shows with smiles on their faces . . . after they pick their jaws up off the ground!

Nadja Palenzuela and The Marvelous Mutts have been performing since 2007. Nadja and Kara Gilmore have been competing with dogs in agility, dock diving and canine disc since 1999. Nadja & Kara’s dogs have reached the highest levels in every sport they have competed in: multiple world finalist disc dogs, national finalist agility dogs, and appearances on ESPN’s Great Outdoor Games and The Purina Incredible Dog Challenge with dock diving dogs. Aside from training dogs to the highest levels in multiple sports, Nadja has appeared on national shows like Good Morning America,The Early Show and The Late Show with David Letterman, as well as countless local media outlets where she has performed. Nadja & Kara love playing with dogs, and their enthusiasm shows in every performance! As passionate supporters of dog adoption and through shows that emphasize the potential in shelter dogs, Nadja & Kara hope to educate the public about the amazing things that shelter dogs can be trained to do.

All of The Marvelous Mutts were adopted from shelters and rescues and do their best to show that rescued dogs can do amazing things. Read more about the individual Mutts here.

*Miss U.S. Unlimited Hydroplane

Stop by and see the amazing Miss U.S. U-36 Unlimited Hydroplane and visit with her owner Jay Armstrong.

Miss U.S. U-36 was commissioned in 1956 by Mr. George Simon of U.S. Equipment Company of Detroit. The builder was Henry Lauterbach. After only 3 races in 1957 and one race in 1958 followed by 54 years in storage, in 2011 the hull was completely rebuilt by Morin Boats of Bay City, Michigan. The engine and drive was overhauled by George Czarnecki a respected, professional aircraft engine re-builder of 40 years experience.

Miss U.S. is one of less than 10 similar operational vintage unlimited hydroplane boats of this type that survive today. Often referred to as "Thunder boats," unlimited hydroplanes were appropriately named for the sounds they created at high power. She is maintained by an experienced crew and driven by Jack Schafer, an unlimited hydroplane driver of many years experience.
