    The Promenade of Mermaids helped build the California Mermaid Convention into what it is today. This FREE, family-friendly celebration brings music, energy, life, and color into Old Town Sacramento every year. Join us as we march through the streets, smile, and shout with merfolk joy!

    Please dress in your favorite merfolk, nautical, pirate, sea creature, or other watery costumes and apparel. We will have vendors on-site, as well as games and activities. We will also be teaching a Flash Mob dance to all marches who would like to participate!

    Small, hand-wheeled carts are allowed to participate in the parade, but no large floats or vehicles please.

    Bring your shell purse! Our wonderful selection of vendors will be selling their wares, and the shops in Old Town will have fin-tastic offerings for all.
