Mermainia! Coney Island Mermaid Parade-Saturday, June 20th

Two words: Mermaid Parade. 'Nuff said. I totally missed this event last year but really want to hit it up tomorrow. This is the nation's largest art parade and one of New York City's greatest summer events! Best part is that it's FREE! This year the parade will be lead by King Neptune, Mr. Harvey Keitel. Special Appearances by The Uptown String Band from the Philadelphia Mummers Parade! “A Whale of A Tale", plus performers from Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey’s Boom a ring!

The fun begins at 2pm, but get there early to grab a spot on the parade route. If you have any questions, the answer is probably here.

To get to the parade, take a D, F, N or Q subway to Coney Island - Stillwell Avenue stop. The trains depart every 8-10 minutes and take about 50 minutes from Manhattan. From Stillwell Avenue you can either walk 6 blocks West along Surf Avenue or take B36 bus to West 22nd Street and walk back one block.

See you on Saturday!

Where:1208 Surf Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11224.
Time: 2:00pm-5:30pm
Cost: Free!
