Fin-tastic Video: Brighton’s Mermaids Parade Raises Awareness and Smiles

The 12th year of the Mermaids Parade saw a glittering procession march along the seafront, sending a powerful message on ocean conservation. The parade set off from the Peace Statue in Hove, bound for the Fortune of War pub in Brighton on Saturday.

This year’s event showcased not only traditional mermaids but also an array of nautical-themed costumes, including lobsters, fish, and even Spongebob Squarepants. Leading the way with her megaphone was Honour Mission, The Figurehead, guiding participants along the route.

The parade aimed to raise funds for the Wave Project, an initiative that supports young people aged between eight and 18 who need mental health assistance, offering them the opportunity to enjoy the therapeutic benefits of surfing and the sea.

Established for over 12 years, the Mermaids Parade celebrates sea and beach life while raising awareness for ocean conservation. The event supports various sea-related charities, welcoming official bucket-shakers to join in the fun.

Open to mermaids of all ages and all forms of sea life, including pirates, the child-friendly parade lasts approximately one hour. Participants were also treated to fun prizes for the best-dressed costumes, adding an extra layer of excitement to the day.

With a vibrant display of creativity and community spirit, the Mermaids Parade continues to be a highlight in Brighton’s calendar, bringing attention to the importance of protecting our oceans and supporting mental health through the joy of sea life.
