Now this is cute.
Twiggy, the world-famous waterskiing squirrel, is coming out of retirement to once again ride the waves at the Toronto Boat Show at the Enercare Centre from Jan. 17 to Jan. 26, 2020.
To celebrate Twiggy’s triumphant return, the Toronto Boat Show and Canada’s largest hobby store Big Boys with Cool Toys have partnered to donate a shiny new boat so everyone’s favourite squirrel can ride in style.
And since every new boat need’s a name, the Toronto Boat Show is calling upon Canadians to get creative in helping Twiggy select a new boat name.
So from now until Jan. 19, Canadians can submit their favourite boat names (up to three names per submission) for the chance to have it branded on Twiggy’s new ride – participants can enter online at www.torontoboatshow.com , in-person at the Toronto Boat Show and on social media by tagging your submissions to @TorontoBoatShow using #TwiggysBoat.
Some early submissions include the likes of “Serenutty,” “Nuts For You,” “Squirrel Life,” and “Twig’s Rig.”
On Jan. 21, in celebration of National Squirrel Appreciation Day, the Toronto Boat Show will select and reveal the Top 10 submitted boat names for a country-wide vote over 48 hours.
The winning name will be announced on Jan. 24 with a live unveiling of Twiggy’s new boat at the Toronto Boat Show.
For rules and regulations go to www.torontoboatshow.com .
In addition to bragging rights, the submitter of the winning name will receive a Toronto Boat Show prize pack (valued at CDN$450), including a remote-control boat just like Twiggy’s from Big Boys with Cool Toys, two passes to the Toronto Boat Show and a one-night hotel accommodation at the Toronto Westin Harbour Castle.
