Unusually warm temperatures in Portland bring mermaids out of seclusion

PORTLAND, OR - A streak of crazy hot weather in Portland has people looking for ways to cool off and enjoy the sun, but at one downtown location, what visitors found looks like something out of a fairy tale.

FOX's Simon Gutierrez was there.

Two mermaids, reclining near the Salmon Springs fountain enthralled children and delighted their parents, singing songs, and handing out wishing stones.

The two women, who identified themselves as Una and Ylluria, wore mermaid tails and sang songs from Disney’s hit movie The Little Mermaid.

The two mermaids will be taking part in the first annual Portlandia Mermaid Parade at the end of July.
