Coney Island's Mermaid Parade

By Meredith Rifkin

The 33rd annual Mermaid Parade took place on Saturday, June 20 in Brooklyn’s Coney Island. Although there was no Mermaid Parade Ball this year, the country’s biggest art parade still brought in an enormous crowd. From authentic mythological-based costumes to all sorts of creatively personalized creations, the Mermaid Parade is one of New York City’s best ways to kick off summer.
