Savannah, GA: Mermaid Parade with Dame Darcy
Written by Anna Pederson | Filed under eventsDame Darcy 23 May 2014 3:13 PM

Saturday, June 21 

Savannah, GA: There's no more fun, or witchy, way to ring in the changing seasons than to celebrate the summer solstice with renaissance woman and artist, Dame Darcy!

June 21st, on Tybee Island beginning at 1 pm, a mermaid parade full of art, glitter, and fishy frolicking, will commence in front of Fannies on the Beach, and party through town to the back river beach near the pier where there will be a picnic, live music, prizes, and the crowning of the Mermaid Queen, so wear your most creative mermaid best! 

Along with being a animator, dollmaker, musician, fashion model, and expert fortune teller, Dame Darcy has been publishing her whimsical alternative comix series, Meat Cake, with Fantagraphics since 1992! The decade long neo-Victorian humor/horror/romance comic series has always toyed with the enchatments of the sea. And her impressive background as artist, witch, and lover of self-expression, make Darcy the perfect unofficial marshal of the Savannah Mermaid Parade.

Tybee Island is located off the coast of Savannah, GA, and will be happening in tandem with the famous Coney Island Mermaide Parade that takes place every year. So if you find yourself south of the ol' mason dixon line, the Tybee Beach Mermaid Parade with Dame Darcy is the place to be!
