Below is a video from a really fun kid's party we did. (Online and posted with permission) we tested out new kid's mermaid tails and fins which we'll now be offering for special bookings and events. The girl's had a total SPLASH
Over the past year we have been fundraising for Hope For Wildlife. They are a wildlife rescue group that do so much to help animals and educate the public. We were lucky enough to get a tour of the centre when we made our donation. We are happy to say we'll be donating our time to the Open house where we'll be performing as mermaids on Aug 30th to help raise money! Check out the photos from our tour below.
For New Years I (Raina) travelled to North Caroline for the second merfest- a mermaid convention! It was so amazing. While I was there, I was interviewed for a book and several news articles, filmed for a documentary (made by awesome Canadians!), received my new and amazing MERBELLAS TAIL that I am so in love with, got to meet my mer-idol Hannah Fraser and sing with her and mermaid Kariel on stage, meet so many amazing merfriends, and even managed some time to get some fairy hair sparkle in my hair. Sean was given an award for being the best merwrangler. Also, while I was away it was Mermaid Mutiny's Birthday, then Mermaid Nessie's, then Mermaid Mimis! So I had some friends help me out wishing them a happy birthday. I have SO many photos and videos... you can see lots on FB but here's a few highlights... merfest also gathered lots of media attention which I was lucky enough to be a part of.

Mermaid Mutiny and Raina the Halifax Mermaid gave an interview for CKDU 88.1 FM just before we left for NB for the Girl's Empowerment Workshop. You can listen to it at the 22:56 mark! http://tinyurl.com/lump28q
