You are not required to register to promenade with us. Those that wish to be considered for costume prizes need only show up by noon to get an entrant number. 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. Our organization is all volunteer and all proceeds over expenses go to our chosen charity.
Pre-Promenade activities in the park begin at 11:30am and culminate at 3pm. Attractions include: The Dive Bar Mermaids & Mermen photo booth, Pixie Tribe face painting & GIANT bubbles, various vendors including Merman Alfonso’s handmade mermaid treasures in his Merman’s Grotto, Pirates of Sacramento’s monkey cannon arcade. 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, by the Grand Marshal, before the march begins.
The Grand Marshal for 2018 is Raina the Halifax Mermaid who will be dropping in to get a taste of the Cal mer-community. Get to know her here: https://www.facebook.com/pg/RainaMermaid
Our charity this year is the Wildlife Care Association of Sacramento, which rescues and rehabilitates over 6,000 wild animals every year. Learn about them here: http://www.wildlifecareassociation.com
The 2018 Promenade Route should remain largely the same, starting and ending our stroll at the south end of Waterfront Park just north of the schoolhouse at 1000 Front Street. We may be detoured but not deterred and we are on rain, sleet, construction or the heat of Hades.
(Please note that all participants in this event must assume responsibility for their own well being and that of their charges and thereby concur with the “release of liability” a copy of which is available via the press tab at the top of this page: www.sacramentopromenadeofmermaids.com.)
