New this spring: West Seattle Mermaid Parade on Alki Beach

Get your inner mermaid out into the open and join this new West Seattle event – Leslie Rosen just sent word, with plenty of time for you to plan:

Calling all mermaids for the first West Seattle Mermaid Parade! Come join us (in costumes!) on Sat May 30, 2015. Meet at the Alki Bathhouse at 11 am for a water-themed veil dance by the Sirens of Serpentine to live harp music by Monica Schley. After, we will walk the Alki Beach Trail. Mermaids are not afraid of water, so this parade happens rain or shine. – Free, all ages and open to everyone.

The mermaid parade is the proud recipient of an art grant from Ignition Northwest (501c) for NEW interactive, community-driven, collaborative works that are accessible to the public and participatory in scope. Fueling community through participatory arts, events and education.

    I’m always a bit disappointed in a modest mermaid but the heart shaped pit patch will take a while to leave my head. Puppies,rainbows,sunsets,gurgling forest stream……….nope,not yet. Kidding aside,enjoy.

    Is this anything like the Mermaid Parade that has been happening in Coney Island since the 80s?

      Depends on who shows up, I think, since this is a first-of-its-kind event …

Sorry, comment time is over.
