NORFOLK, VA—Slover Library and MacArthur Center are joining forces to celebrate 20 years of Norfolk's unique Mermaids with a Mermaid Costume Parade. Mermaid and merman fans are invited to dress up in their best “mer” attire and be part of the parade. Yes, YOU will be the parade!

The parade will take place on Saturday, September 14, 2019 in the 1st floor Live 360 Court of MacArthur Center from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Participants can sign up for one of three parade times:

Families walking in or watching the parade will also enjoy performances by Slover Library’s Itty Bitty Ballerinas, the 5678 Shine Dancers, mermaid and nautical crafts, face painting, a “Shell-fie” station and a Costume Contest. Judges will select the best mermaid and merman costume in each of three parade waves to win a prize, for a total of six Costume Contest winners.
