Mermaid Parade and Faire

These festivities are part of Mermaid Splash, an annual, multi-event festival celebrating San Marcos’ arts, culture, heritage, and, of course, the San Marcos River. Head downtown for the Downtown Mermaid Promenade. The parade is an eclectic and colorful spectacle full of floats, marchers, dancers, and music. The fun continues at the Mermaid Aqua Faire immediately following the parade. Follow the floats to San Marcos Plaza Park and enjoy a free community festival of art, live music, food, and fun. You may want to take a dip in the river after this mermaid-packed day. Just don’t be surprised to see a few fins flipping around in the water with you.

When:

Sept. 21
