The 2nd Annual Asbury Park Promenade of Mermaids was a huge success!

We would like to thank everyone who contributed to making this a fin-tastic day on the Boardwalk in Asbury Park, from our sponsors and volunteers to the all promenaders, prize winners, performers and vendors. It was truly an unforgettable day.

We are grateful for all the hard work and dedication throughout the year of the many people who gave their time and energy to help make the 2016 Asbury Park Promenade of Mermaids such a fabulous success.

Thank you Marilyn Schlossbach and your entire crew, Karen Anderson, Krystyee Anderson, Jimmy Berry, CJ Booker, Tom Chesek, Tracy Coon, Don Dazzo, Mary Dean, Kelly Erving, Rachel Gorra, Brian Hallas, Jenn Hampton, Marilyn Kreis, Tim Lucas, Coral Mags, Glinda Martinez, Jenn Mehm, Dana and John Miller, Vivi Noir, Stephanie Silk, Dario Valdivia, Mary Vileno, and Maxine Snow. We apologize if we’ve missed anyone on this list, and please let us know if we have.

Thank you, too, to our wonderful vendors Pamela Booker, Dot Bugbee, Melissa Cetrolla, Megan Impellizzeri, Desirée Florio, Sandy Foley, Amanda Mercadante, Vivi Noir and Jordan Robinson.

A final thank you to Torey Woods of Clean Action Ocean for hanging in to the very end, pitching in and making the day much easier for the rest of us.

13062084_1709697482630887_805715241747133295_n.jpg

Vivi Noir is a NJ based burlesque dancer. She is the producer of “Le Vaudeville Noir”, Director of The Noir Follies, owner of South Jersey Dance Theatre, and a mermaid for events and parades. On a daily basis children often point at her fiery red hair and exclaim “Mommy! Look! It’s Ariel!” She is extremely excited to be honored Grand Marshal of the Asbury Park Promenade of Mermaids this year!
