Mermaid Parade - June 23, 2012 - 30th Anniversary!May 2013 - The Mermaid Parade in Coney Island, New York is a totally unique and brilliant idea that is without a doubt America's biggest art parade and New York City's summer kickoff party (a close second being San Francisco's Castro Street Fair).
In 1983, the Mermaid Parade started its tradition that pays homage to Coney Island's forgotten Mardi Gras which was from 1903 to 1954. The festival attracts a wide array of characters from around the USA resulting in an absolutely fun family-oriented party.
Coney Island's Mermaid Parade celebrates the beach, the ocean, the salty breeze and the beginning of summer. The participants are dressed in hand-crafted Mermaid costumes and other odd eye-catching attire.
