MerPalooza the International Mermaid Convention, Party and Trade Show, is less than a week away. It is being held in Tampa, Florida, and is a rallying point (er pool) for US and international mermaids.
This year MerPalooza is offering exclusive excursions to many of the local Tampa Bay area marine research facilities and the world famous Weeki Wachee Springs State Park featuring the mermaid Underwater Theater which has featured in numerous movies and television shows. Just read here if you want to know "What happens at a mermaid convention?"
