The annual Coney Island Mermaid Parade takes place on the first Saturday after the summer
solstice. The event celebrates the beginning of Summer. The parade includes
mermaids of all shapes, sizes and ages, as well as floats, classic cars, and many
surprises. Parade participants usually have more fun than the spectators.
Anyone can march in the parade as long as you register in advance.
The 2003 parade was a wet one. The rain kept the crowds and the
number of participants down, but it did not dampen their spirits.
