Inspired by the famous Sacramento Promenade of Mermaids, Asbury Park is hosting its first annual event Saturday, July 11.

We’re calling on all mermaids, sea creatures and land-dwelling friends to dress up in their finest costumes, take a walk on the boards, and stay for the costume contest  (presided over by our VIP judges, King Neptune, The Pirate and The Asbury Park Mermaid).

Prizes will be awarded for Best Costume and Runner up for adults (ages 15 and up), as well as 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes for kids aged 14 and under.  Our judges will also crown a King and Queen for our first event – and the fun continues throughout the day! Adults may join us for an After Party at the AP Yacht Club on the Boardwalk with craft vendors and DJ Don Dazzo spinning tunes.  For the kids, those in costume will get discount tickets to Mini-Golf.

The Promenade commences from the North end of the Boardwalk, where check in and day of registration takes place between 10am and 12pm.  At noon, the costumed promenaders will proceed south along the boards, marching through the Grand Arcade at Convention Hall and continuing until reaching the Casino.  At that point the procession turns onto Ocean Ave, heading up to Third Avenue and back onto the Boardwalk, where emcee Don Dazzo will welcome everyone and the judges will present the prizes for Best Costumes and a DJ dispenses beach music sounds near the Asbury Park Visitor Center welcome wagon.

Promenade participants can register for FREE online at  www.asburyparkmermaids.com until June 30th and on-site registration on July 11 will be $5.  There is NO registration required to Promenade but participants must be registered if they wish to be considered for prizes.

The 1st Annual Asbury Park Promenade of Mermaids is made possible by the generous support of the Marilyn Schlossbach Group (Langosta Lounge, Pop’s Garage, Lightly Salted and the A.P.Y.C) and with the help from the City of Asbury Park.  The Promenade is also putting out the siren call for volunteer helpers to lend a hand on the event day.

We are looking to make a big splash in our inaugural year so please contact us at asburyparkmermaids@gmail.com  for more information on this exciting new addition to the summer season, dedicated to the spirit of good, safe, and positive fun in the sun! Hope to SEA you there!
