Mermaid Parade

Coney Island’s annual Mermaid Parade is an endless riot of color, whacky get-ups, nudity and fantasy.  Great good fun.  It was worth the extra $ to get into the “preparation” area where we could see the paradeniks putting on their costumes, makeup, preening around and practicing.  Plus, there were places to sit, like stoops.
