The Coney Island Mermaid Parade in Brooklyn, New York, returned on June 18 after a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The parade featured music and musicians and participants dressed as mermaids, umbrellas fashioned after jellyfish, and other fanciful costumes.
“The Mermaid Parade specifically was founded in 1983 with 3 goals: it brings mythology to life for local residents who live on streets named Mermaid and Neptune ; it creates self-esteem in a district that is often disregarded as “entertainment”; and it lets artistic New Yorkers find self-expression in public,” Coney Island USA said.
