The Whimsical Mermaid Festival In New Jersey You Don’t Want To Miss

New Jersey has a whole host of fun festivals and Asbury Park is home to a handful of my favorites. The Asbury Park Zombie Crawl is a classic Halloween tradition but they celebrate other supernatural creatures, as well. They’ve welcomed us to a world of witchcraft and wizardry with Pottercon and invite us all to fall under the spell of magnificent mermaids at their annual promenade.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

Have you been to the Asbury Park Promenade of Mermaids yet? Will you be going this summer? While the mermaid parade is sure to be a blast, there’s plenty more to do while you’re in town. Check out this fantastic food truck park, or this paranormal museum and bookstore, for starters.
