Mermaids in Marshall + After Party Rage @ the FBI

June 16, 2011 § Leave a comment

The pirates mermaids of Marshall came ashore in their FIN(est) attire for the June 10th French Broad Friday celebration! The procession started on Blennerhasset Island and continued through downtown Marshall

and continued through town, ending at Good Stuff. Brought together to promote local businesses and creative life on the river, the normally antithetical mermaid and pirate communities joined forces for a fun summer celebration:

After the parade, mermaids and kin headed to the FBI to shake their tails to the aural stylings of Solarcab Company, Create Digital, D;RAF, Atlas Journey, and DJ Story. $1 waters kept the water folk hydrated, and yummy quesadillas were also on sale to fill bellies and enable all to dance till the wee hours.

Kids partied, too–tea partied, that is! The FBI provided tea and glowsticks for the little mermaids at a magical tea party table.

Thanks to all for another wonderful Mermaids in Marshall! We at the FBI can’t wait to see y’all at the next French Broad Friday!
