Coney Island Mermaid Parade

Going along with the 10,000 other events happening this weekend is Coney Island’s annual Mermaid Parade. From the website:

The Mermaid Parade celebrates the sand, the sea, the salt air and the beginning of summer, as well as the history and mythology of Coney Island, Coney Island pride, and artistic self-expression. The Parade is characterized by participants dressed in hand-made costumes as Mermaids, Neptunes, various sea creatures, the occasional wandering lighthouse, Coney Island post card or amusement ride, as well as antique cars, marching bands, drill teams, and the odd yacht pulled on flatbed.

Somehow I always ended up missing the paraded by being to tired to bike out there but I think i might actually make it there this year. Starts at 2pm.
