The annual Return of the Mermaids festival is back tomorrow, Aug. 10, from 3-11 p.m. The monsoon celebration and mermaid festival in Downtown Tucson and Historic 4th Avenue is a family-friendly event that features mermaids, musical performances, vendors, costume contests, and parties.
Organizers encourage party-goers to dress up as if they live under the sea. One of the highlights of the event is a sidewalk parade that begins at 8:30 p.m. on East Congress Street. Please wear a costume or hold the hand of a costumed child to participate in the festivities.
