Do you like mermaids? Would you like to be a mermaid (albeit in a hotel swimming pool)?
Then Merfest is the convention for you! Up to a 1000 people have been known to gather to celebrate the mythical water dwelling creatures and boy, do they go all in!
Wearing tails that have been known to cost as much $4000, merfolk swim about, take workshops on holding your breath, and even have beauty pageants.
Unfortunately, due to the niche nature of this aquatic community meeting, MerFest meet ups are sporadically organised and thus becoming fewer and fewer in number.
A bit like actual mermaids. Probably.
