The event is meant to bring local families together while also providing fun and goodies for kids.

Costumes included colorful mermaids, legendary sea creatures and hearrty pirates.
“I like that people can use their imagination about the sea. They can imagine what happens,” said “mermaid” Reya Bohlander.

Participants say they had a real “parrrty” at this annual “shellebration” of seaside characters.
