The second annual North Carolina Merfest is set for this coming January, and that is really not that far off! Let's hear more from the event organizers:
New this year, the festivities will be joined by a fleet of fun-loving pirates, and activities for kids of all ages. Much like the mermaid-themed classes, aspiring and experienced pirate performers will receive lessons on firearms, swordplay, as well as proper look and attitude. For the children, there will be options to learn and play from pirates, or swim and play with the mermaids.
Also new this year, we are featuring some prominent guests. They include Hannah Fraser (long-time professional mermaid, ocean activist, performance artist and underwater model), Caribbean Pearl (pirate instructor and performer with a specialty in their fashions), Twig the Fairy (nationally acclaimed renn faire performer) and Robert Short (award-winning special effects artist of Splash, Beetlejuice, Cocoon and more). We will also have a few veteran performers from the famous Weeki Wachi Springs in Florida, and two of the biggest names in the tail making community, Mertailor and Finfolk Productions.
It's three days of mermaids, pirates and magic for everyone young and old. This is a once-in-a-lifetime event that's not to be missed. Visit our event web site to join us on the fun!
Did you know that Australia isn't the only country producing mermaid themed television? Add Korea and the Philippines to the list.
At the Viki Official Blog, Brittany Vo presents the article, Ten Things About Mermaids Bet You Didn’t Know. Now, I know my readers are quite knowledgable about mermaids, so perhaps you know many of these things already.
The article features performers from the television shows Surplus Princess and Dyesebel, and includes some great photos.
Best wishes and starfishes,
