“Mermaids to gather in landlocked Yelm for Saturday festival”

“Saturday, a group of mermaids will gather in Yelm.

“These mythical creatures — half human and half fish — are generally said to be found, reasonably enough, in the water. So what’s luring them to the prairie?

“It’s the first Yelm Mermaid Festival, where mermaids (or regular folk in mermaid attire) can meet and greet other mermaids, including a few professional mermaids; listen to stories told by a mermaid and harp music played by another; shop and do mermaid-related craft projects,” by Molly Gilmore, Contributing writer, Tacoma News Tribune.
