Separate contests will be held for children and adults; guests must register for the costume contest on site, the day of the convention.

Feed a hungry shark, save a flounder sailor, explore the con with a Pirate Passport, color a mermaid and fence with foam swords. You may even win some pirate gold for your efforts!

- Panels and Lectures:  Expand your mermaid knowledge and ask questions with some of the Mermaid Industry's  leading professionals. A must for any mermaid looking for discourse, enlightenment and education. Light refreshment will be provided.

- Adult Swim: Swim with friends and make some new ones in our beautiful pool.  While you swim, you may even want to check out a few of our poolside vendors; and test out some of their wares in the water! 

Our Convention is being held at the beautiful Rush Park Community Center; guests will have access to the grounds, which include a park, playground, creek and free parking.  Guests are welcome to enjoy the lush lawns and picnic, or spend time poolside in the spacious bleachers.
