2014 promenade logo

Please join us for the 4th Annual Promenade!

This year festivities will commence with a By Land & By Sea fashion show on Friday night at Dive Bar, the Promenade Saturday mid day, and Saturday evening a Dive Bar AfterParty for our first ever Sacramento Mermaid Weekend. Go to   for details.

The Promenade will begin and end on the boardwalk by the Delta King at 1000 Front Street in Old Town Sacramento on Saturday, May  31st, 2014 at 1pm. You are not required to register to promenade with us.

You are required to register and obtain your entrant number to be considered for prizes. Pre registration is available via the “registration” link through May 29th. On site registration will be available on the day of starting at noon. (Get there early to register, as all entrants for judging, preregistered or not, will need to be assigned a number at the registration table before the 1pm march begins.)

Prizes will be awarded for BEST COSTUME for both adults and children as well as some miscellaneous categories, to be announced. Judging will be administered by this years King and Queen.

The Grand Marshal this year is the lovely Vira Burgerman she  can be seen at:

Come one, come all! Mermaids, mermen, pirates and all sea creatures are welcome to Promenade with us along the charming boardwalk of Old Town Sacramento! (We are steampunk friendly)

Head over to the registration page to sign up only if you wish to be considered for prises, which are awarded at the grandstand (start/finish point) immediately following the Promenade!

The wearing of nautical attire is strongly encouraged, AND bear in mind, one need not register to stroll with us.

Check out the 2014 Promenade Route! It’s gonna be so much FIN!!!

T-SHIRTS Still Available!!!
We still have 2011 and 2012 Promenade T-shirts available for $12 and expect to have  2013 & 2014 commemorative patches.– please message us to support the Promenade by purchasing one or on the day of the event at the registration table!

This year, instead of a “MerCrawl,” after the awarding of prizes has concluded our adult participants are encouraged to stroll with us on down the K street mall to the Dive Bar for an after party. The “After Party” commences at 4pm and will conclude around 6pm. The Dive Bar Mermaids will lead the charge down the mall.

    Registration channels are open, so sign up early if you would like to be considered for prizes and show up early at the registration desk to get your entrant number and to be seen by the King & Queen. Otherwise, just come and promenade with us (costumes of a nautical nature are encouraged). If you are interested in sponsoring the event, use the contact link and Alfonso will respond in short measure

    I just registered under my name but I wanted it to be for my daughters to be judged…how do I do that…do I register twice to get two numbers? or copy the number twice?

      Dear Sunflower, I would have a registration for each of the girls. It won’t matter that one is in your name. You just need two separate entries so that the girls will have their own numbers. Do it before Thursday 5/29 10pm and it is still free. Make sure the girls get there at least by noon – 12:30 to sign in and get the numbers to affix to their costumes. See you soon.
