The World Mermaid Awards and MerCon
Mermaid lovers rejoice! For the first time ever, the world's "mers" are getting their own mermaid convention in the form of the World Mermaid Awards. This inaugural annual event hosted by Sita Lange of Maui Mermaids, is being held in Las Vegas on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 August 2011 at the Mirage Hotel and will feature the largest Pool Party ever! Guests include the amazing writer Doreen Virtue (whose books and cards sets we collect – in fact, see our previous post on the Magical Mermaids and Dolphins Oracle Cards), Hannah Fraser and Marina, the Fire eating Mermaid – MeduSirena. The event will also feature live mermaids in the water fountain, vintage and new mermaid movie theatre, exhibitions and various other activities. Check out the World Mermaid Awards website for more information, and CONGRATULATIONS to the organisers for such a great idea. We're going to be working hard to get at least one of us to the event.
