Love mermaids? Want to get salty or enjoy a “mermosa” with a mermaid? The inaugural Key West Mermaid Festival will celebrate the graceful, colorfully attired women swimmers of the magical underwater world Friday through Sunday, July 5-7.
The three-day family-friendly fest will promote ocean awareness and safe swimming in mermaid tails. Key West-based Reef Relief will benefit from a percentage of proceeds, or “treasure,” raised from event ticket sales.
“Mermaids are definitely surfacing every-where these days. Becoming a mermaid makes dreams come true for so many, young and old alike,” said Kristiann Mills, founder of the festival. “‘Mermaiding’ is also an excellent form of fitness and a great social activity that has brought together an entire community of ocean-minded people across the globe.
”The Mermaid Festival kicks off from noon to 6 p.m. Friday, July 5, with a complimentary Meet the Mermaids pool party, at Havana Cabana Resort, 3420 N. Roosevelt Blvd. “Swim with Mermaids” tickets, priced at $15, are for one-on-one mermaid swim sessions.
From 6 to 10 p.m. Friday, an Under the Sea on The Green at Sunset Green Event Lawn, located between The Gates and 24 North hotels at 3820 N. Roosevelt Blvd., showcases mermaid- and ocean-inspired art.
Four events are scheduled for Saturday, July 6. The day begins with Breakfast with Mermaids at Southernmost Beach Resort’s Sand Bar, over-looking the Atlantic Ocean at 508 South St., from 8 a.m. to noon. An eco-friendly Mermaid Fest Parade, open and free to all, will kick off at 11 a.m. and roll down Duval Street to the Truman Waterfront.
In addition, Salty Saturday, set for noon to 6 p.m. at the Truman Waterfront, features ocean- and mermaid-inspired entertainment, vendors and education. An Ocean Blue Party, from 8 p.m. to midnight, is for mermaid-lovers aged 21 and older at The Breakfast Club, Too, 610 Greene St., with “mermosas.” Reef Relief will conduct an “ocean of treasures” silent auction.
From noon to 6 p.m. on Sunday, July 7, a beachside Sunday Funday will take place with Mermaids at Lagerheads Beach Bar, 0 Simonton St., and includes mingling with mermaids and “Captain Shenanigans,” food and drink, face-painting, vendors and music.
