MERMAID/ MERMAN PARADE 2014! Come strut your stuff with us!

Yes this year we are marching in the parade!

Come join us as we strut together as an awesome group!

So far we have Superhero designed mermaid/ merman outfits! Of course if others want to do something else that is fine!

We want as many of you to come out as possible so we can have a mega awesome contingent! I also have red/ white/ blue paper mache necklaces we can throw out to the crowd as we walk! If you have friends who want to walk with us but not dress up that would be cool they can be of assistance to us.   If you want to twirl flags or blow whistles etc..do so! If you want to do a quick dance routine..go for it!

 And after the parade we'll do our normal photoshoot by the water.

As always bring water and make your costumes as comfortable as possible!

 pls join our facebook group we have dedicated to this and furture mermaid parade / aqua- themed fantasy events/ photoshoots!.

    This was my first event with this group. I thought everyone's costumes were beautiful. What a warm and welcoming group this is. My biggest regret was that I suffered from dehydration and had to leave early. I look forward to the next event I can make. :)

    Hey, you suggest that we join the FB group but my request has been pending for a few days and the event is tomorrow. I don't want to not be able to meet you because I don't have access to your postings. :)

    I was wondering since the Mermaid Parade is 6 days away, are the organizers going to create a meet-up plan for those members who are participating in the parade and those members who are coming as patrons?It's a wonderful idea to have members march in parade to give out promotional materials which would bring excitement to those interested in discovering our group. I also think it would be even better if “everyone in attendance" are able to meet-up towards the end for an awesome big group picture. I am still 50/50 about marching but I might lean towards marching so I am more likely going to register in person early. Organizer Darlena will be there at 10 am for those marching but will there be another organizer to greet those who opt not to march? If so, where and what time should members meet organizer? If all organizers will be marching in parade and cannot meet and greet members who are going as patrons, then I wouldn’t mind volunteering for that role.

      Those members coming as patrons can also dress up, socialize with each other and hand out promotional materials too which create another excellent creative buzz.

      Hi Kiamesha yes many of us are marching which is why we created the fb group so we can make plans. All the organizers are marching but those who are not are not all getting to the parade around the same time. What time will you b there if you want you can meet folks at the station and wait for a certain time then go on and enjoy the parade. I will post the lineup for the group once they tell me when i get there. Everyone in the parade will have items to throw out to the crowd to advertise the group. At the end of the parade we will try to wait for folks so we can go down to the beach for pics as is our tradition...then off to nathans. Pics by the water takes awhile as there are many of us and those who didn't march are encouraged to take pics as a group.

  • darlena

    hey all! I will be there around 11am they tell me where the line up is for our group once i get there. i will then post it on the site. afterwards we will disband at steeplechase plaza where the parade ends and go take pics by the water then off to nathans for food and fellowship!
