Dive into Tucson

big-dipper-in-tucsonWhen you think of Arizona, the ocean isn’t usually what comes to mind. The Grand Canyon, Tombstone, fabulous golfing, sure. But sea life isn’t an obvious association.

MermaidsThis August, find out about Arizona’s secret sea life at the Return of the Mermaids. August 8, Tucson’s streets fill with mermaids and mermen who emerge to celebrate the rainy season. Along 4th Avenue, elaborately dressed entertainers flood, singing, dancing and causing mischief.

As the merfolk transform the street into an under-the-sea paradise, bring your family for an aquatic parade, costume contests, crafting and face painting. Be sure to bring your camera to capture the event and take pictures with your favorite mermaid.
