If you live in America, you really don’t need one more reason to get excited about summer. But I’ve got one for you anyway: Mercon, a mermaid convention and charity event that will be happening at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas on August 12 and 13.

And what better place to host an under-the-sea event than in the the most popular city in the desert. Mercon is the first of its kind and will be hosted by the Maui Mermaids, who I assume are leaders in the mermaid profession. So grab your Ariel costume and get ready for some swimming, singing, and top-notch mermaid tail vendors.
