    Hi folks! You might wish to do a 2nd version of that JPG because "professional" and "Sacramento" have typos.

    Not asking for myself as it's a little far, but what exactly constitutes as an "experienced mermaid?" You've mentioned it multiple times, so does that pertain to how long they've been a mermaid or how many gigs they've had? Type of tail?

    Hi Ashe, for our photoshoot in the tank, that means mermaids who have spent time in their tails (silicone, fabric or otherwise) and are comfortable swimming in them

    You are not required to register to promenade with us. In fact we have done away with pre-registration altogether. Those that wish to be considered for costume prizes need only show up by noon to get an entrant number. This year all child & Adult entrants are free. Look for our donation chest on the registration table which allows for better prizes and helps to pay for all the fantastic freebies we are adding for the children this year.

Attractions include: The Dive Bar Mermaids & Mermen photo booth, Pixie Tribe face painting & GIANT bubbles, Merman Alfonso’s handmade mermaid treasures in his Merman’s Grotto, Pirates of Sacramento’s monkey cannon arcade. Sarah Armstrong-Garner author of “Sinking” (The first book of a Mermaid adventure trilogy) will be on hand for book signing. Artist Jon Lowe’s Mermaid paintings, and much more. There will be Mermaids, Mermen & Pirates aplenty as well as sea creatures of every persuasion.

    Prizes will be awarded for BEST COSTUME for both adult and child entrants as well as some miscellaneous categories, to be announced. Judging will be administered by this years King and Queen, who will be chosen at random before the march begins.

    The Grand Marshal for 2017 will be, The Mermaid Atlantis:

    (A Professional Mermaid, Variety Entertainer, Costume Designer, and Model in the San Francisco Bay area and beyond! http://mermaidatlantis.com/)
    Mermaid Atlantis will also hostess for the Adult swim & cocktail party Friday the 19th see “Mermaid Weekend in Sacramento”.
