Mermaid Parade

It’s the first annual Portlandia Mermaid Parade!  I had to be there.  It was a good day to wait on the waterfront for mermaids to wander by.

I wasn’t situated in the best place for photos, (next year) but here they are:IMG_5719 IMG_5720

There were at least two mermaids being pulled in wagons.IMG_5725 IMG_5726 IMG_5727 IMG_5728

Many mermaids stopped at the Salmon Street Fountain for some pictures.IMG_5729 IMG_5730 IMG_5731 IMG_5732 IMG_5733 IMG_5734 IMG_5735 IMG_5736 IMG_5737

The mermaid parade was a hit!

  1. What a festive parade! I love the varieties of costumes and interpretations of the mermaid concept! Very fun!

    And hello July!!!

  2. Super cute! Looks like everyone had a lot of fun. I know that the answer will probably be “because it’s Portland” but I’m going to ask anyway: why did they decide to have a mermaid parade?
