Coney Island Mermaid Parade 2014Coney Island (W 21st St & Surf Ave, Coney Island, NY) Map it Free
It's a Coney Island institution, almost as important as the Wonder Wheel itself: The Mermaid Parade returns today with hundreds of scantily clad mermaids, mermen, Neptunes, and creatures of the deep both real and fictional. This year's king and queen are Dante and Chiara de Blasio. Go for the spectacle, stay for some Nathan's — and maybe even the Mermaid Parade Ball, held at MCU Park and featuring live music, burlesque and DJ sets.
