There Was A Magical Mermaid Parade In Coney Island And We Have Pictures

Despite a rainy weather forecast, New Yorkers came out in droves to participate in Coney Island’s Mermaid Parade on June 17.

The whimsical, 35-year-old tradition revels in the spirited and artistic nature of the beloved beach town. The stars of the show are the fanciful  nautical costumes worn by the procession’s 3,000 participants. We saw all sorts of seafaring creatures and not a single one was a fish out of water.

Each year two New York icons are selected to be crowned Mermaid Queen and King Neptune, this year it was musicians Debbie Harry and Chris Stein from the band Blondie. Simply amazing.
