Our Mission -To be a catalyst for creative collaboration that promotes engagement and inspires connection among like-spirited partners for community good. Mermaid Society of Texas produces an annual city-wide, multi-event festival celebrating our city’s arts, culture, heritage and our most precious resource, the San Marcos River. This 15-day festival has something for everyone! SPLASH is designed to be an all-inclusive community platform to inspire connection in celebration of our creative community and river culture. We highlight the San Marcos River by using this platform to leverage engagement for education and protection of our river through various events and activity organized by community organizations, schools, businesses and the like.
