Mermaid Parade

June 13, 2016

This Saturday at Coney Island, check out the annual Mermaid Parade. Unlike most parades, there's no ethnic, or religious reasons for this parade. And you won't just see mermaids in this parade. It's a whole celebration of mythology, seaside rituals, and amazing art. There's also floats and antique cars to be seen. The parade starts at 1pm on West 21st Street and Surf Avenue. It's free to watch, of course, so if you think it might interest you or even if you're just in the neighborhood, it might not be a bad way to start your day. After that you can head over to the boardwalk!

High powered telescopes are provided and the event is free! For more information, visit the official website and follow them on twitter for updates in case of cancelation due to weather.
