The Mermaid Parade NY
June 18, 2016Free
The Mermaid Parade is the “nation’s largest art parade” and one of New York City’s greatest summer events. The parade pays homage to Coney Island’s forgotten Mardi Gras which lasted from 1903 to 1954. Thousands of mermaids, Neptunes, sea creatures and antique cars flood Coney Island for the Mermaid Parade, which kicks off the summer season for the area’s boardwalk, amusement park and attractions. The Mermaid Parade begins at West 21st Street and Surf Avenue at 1pm. Rain or shine.
