Coney Island Mermaid Parade

The annual Coney Island Mermaid Parade is always a festive affair, filling the streets of the seaside Brooklyn neighborhood with sea creatures of all shapes and sizes – mostly covered in about as much glitter as seaweed! This year’s 36th edition kept the tradition going, with a beautiful sunny day for participants and revelers.

Jeanette D. Moses was there to capture some of the behind the scenes action as well as the parade itself. Read on for photos!
