Hey guys! So I'm a student photographer and I'd really like to get experience taking event photography. I want to find some really cool events too shoot though, and I figured this was the best place to ask ^.^ Anyone know of upcoming events that no one would mind me shooting? They can be mermaid-themed or not. If wanted, I can give some of my better pictures for the event-planner's use and all.

Though, I'd like events where I don't have to pay over say $20 to attend.

Any ideas, anyone? I'd really appreciate it! Once I feel more comfortable with my portrait-taking skills, I'll open that up too
