SAN MARCOS, Texas — Sirenalia is a mermaid production company that creates realistic mermaid tails. They make appearances at parties, resorts, festivals, aquariums and in television/film.

But Sirenalia is not ALL fun and games. The company is also dedicated to raising awareness about their fellow marine life, working to improve the education of young people and using their striking imagery to make the world a better place.  Sirenalia holds regular retreats, donating their profits to local nonprofits. 

Next week, about two dozen mermaids are heading to San Marcos for an underwater river cleanup. On Saturday, Sept. 17, they’ll be at San Marcos Plaza Park from 1 to 8 p.m. for photo opportunities and fun with the community. Donations received will go to the group, Eyes of the San Marcos River.
