Westport Winery Mermaid Museum Groundbreaking Ceremony
A groundbreaking ceremony for the International Mermaid Museum will be held Saturday from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Westport Winery Garden Resort.
The 3,888-square-foot museum will be built on the opposite side of the patio from the restaurant/winery. Upon completion next spring, it will educate visitors about ocean ecology immersed in mermaid mythology, according to founder Kim Roberts.
During Saturday’s event, Una the Mermaid will greet visitors from her 900-gallon freshwater tank.
All attendees on Saturday will be required to wear masks and observe social distancing protocol during the outdoor festivities.
