PIRATES, mermaids and fairies are expected to overrun Waterfront Park in Alkimos at a free family fun day next month.

The next Shore Things event will be ‘Treasures of Shorehaven’ on Sunday, December 2, with visitors encouraged to dress up.

The nautical-themed carnival will include a mermaid and fairy lagoon and pirate cove, with craft workshops, face painting, temporary tattoos, a discovery pool as well the opportunity to have a photo taken with a mermaid.

The main sail stage will feature live music and a pirate re-enactment as well body-shaking belly dancing, puppet, hip hop and pirate performances, with performers and characters also roving among the crowd.

There will be carnival rides and inflatable games including the cannonball shoot, dress-up relays, sack races, mermaid races, sandcastle construction and tug-of-war.

There will also be two pirate treasure digs on the beach with getaways among the prizes.

The event will run from 10am to 2pm on December 2 at Waterfront Park on Portside Promenade, Alkimos
