Mermaids sometimes need a break, a little R&R, is what we're saying here, and, each March, Ventura Harbor Village kindly gives them a special spotlight. For that's when Mermaid Month swims through the area, which rocks an assortment of shops and eateries.
Mermaid Month has as many merry goings-on as a tail has scales, or just about, so choosing your day, or days, is as essential as krill is to a hungry cetacean.
A major centerpiece of the month-long lark?
It's the Mermaid Parade on Saturday, March 23, but isn't just for cheering on from the sidelines. The public is invited to go "sea-themed" in their sartorial choices and join in, so best find your most shell-y suits and gowns.
Mermaid Meet & Greets are also popping up on three select Saturdays — March 9, 23, and 30 — while there's a Monday through Thursday deal on the Mermaids Curse Room at The Ultimate Escape Rooms.
Dessert-tastic "Mermaid Cones" at Coastal Cones, deals in shops, and other tail-flipping fun times are breaking the waves throughout the month.
Mermaids, you're busy out there, in the Big Blue, so come ashore this March, in Ventura Harbor Village, for a little well-deserved diversion among the landlubbers.
