Little Mermaid - a gift from Carl Jacobsen to the city of Copenhagen, this bronze statue was unveiled at the Langelinie Harbourfront Promenade back in 1913 and is considered to be on of Copenhagen's symbols..
 

The Little Mermaid celebrates her birthday on 23 August. Hundreds of people gather to pay tribute to this local and national symbol.

Festivities begin at 16:00, when a large group of formation-swimmers  perform their routine by the statue (each swimmer representing one year of her life). This event is followed by speaches, music, and balloons taking to the sky.
