It has happened before and it will happen again. . .
Legend tells that for one night a year the enchanted waters of the Mermaid Lagoon are safe for mortal travelers. The mermaids ask only that you make an offering to The Sea, and dance with them…
On May 15th, the Mermaid Lagoon will return to New York City for just one night. Since beginning, the Mermaid Lagoon has sent thousands of dollars each year to ocean conservation projects both locally and around the world.
This year, we will evoke the mermaids of the Royal Seas by celebrating in a decadent and deserving mermaid manner in the brand new House of Yes. Come dressed for regal success and an evening of performance, dance, games, revelry, and song as we dig deep to give back to our oceans. Remember your connection to the sea, and celebrate its enchantment, mystery, and beauty in a lagoon full of dancing royal mermaids and projected ocean dreamscapes.
This year we will send money to Billion Oyster Project to benefit our local waterways, and continue supporting Orca Network in their quest to retire Lolita the orca to a natural sea-pen in her native waters, and be freed from decades of captivity in the Miami Seaquarium.
