Sacramento Promenade of Mermaids

Saturday, August 17

A wise crab once noted that, while “the seaweed is always greener in somebody else's lake,” it's commendable for us to appreciate what we've got at home. This weekend, look no further than Old Sacramento. The third annual Promenade of Mermaids sets sail with mermaids, mermen, pirates and sea life. Free, 1 p.m. at 1000 Front Street;
