Return of the Mermaids

In Tucson, every monsoon season, the heavens open up, and the mermaids reappear to sing, to dance, and, maybe cause a tiny bit of mischief. Return of the Mermaids is an annual Monsoon Celebration, festival, and parade. A 2 district event- Return of the Mermaids spans 4th Ave and Downtown, connected by the magical Mermaid Falls. This is an all ages event except 21+ w/id at Flycatcher. 4th Ave being *very* little-mermaid-friendly. Mermaids get a little racier as the evening goes on, so, parental discretion, after about 10pm. Dress up and join the adventure and spend one night as though you live under the sea. Thank you for joining us for this fun and creative art walk!
