Mermaid Parade 2017 Swims Into Rosendale on Sunday
There will be plenty of Mermaids in Ulster County on Sunday as Rosendale hosts the Mermaid Parade.
Rosendale had to fix the Town Pool a few years ago and that cost a pretty penny. The pool is great and they would like to keep it that way, so part of the reason for the Mermaid Parade is to raise money.
According to the Rosendalevictorian website, the event will raise funds for the pool, along with the Rosendale Theater and the farmer's market. This will be a family event and mermaids will be dressed appropriately. If you are familiar with the parade in Coney Island, that is a bit racy and Rosendale's parade is not going to be like that.
Amy Trompetter of the Red Wing Blackbird Theater on main Street has made GIANT MERMAID PUPPETS for the parade. Parents and children...doing things TOGETHER!
The Sunday the Rosendale Mermaid Parade kicks off at 1 pm at the Farmer's Market behind the Rosendale Theater.
