Neptune’s daughter will be cruising the streets of Boca Grande and stirring up island magic as she invites guests to the Barrier Island Parks Society’s 20th Annual Green Gala with the theme “Under the Sea.”
The event will be held on Friday, March 18 at the Boca Bay Pass Club from 6 to 11 p.m. Tickets are $125 per person, with reserved tables of 10 available for $1,250.
Tickets are available online at or by calling 964-0060, the Port Boca Grande Lighthouse.
Back to the mermaid. She will be handing out flyers and seashells to people downtown on Saturday, Feb. 20. Make sure you stop and grab a selfie with her, as these opportunities don’t happen every day.
