Mermaid Parade: A Day for the Big Mermaids To Come Out And Play

The Coney Island Mermaid Parade 2014_____

The Mermaid Parade was awesome!!!

My sister Andrea came to town to go to the Coney Island USA Mermaid Parade with me. Our grandfather loved Coney Island when he was a kid, and I have no doubt he would have loved the parade. He would have been shocked, of course, but he’d have loved it nonetheless.

There was so much creativity, and everybody in or watching the parade was 100% in the mermaid spirit. We also learned the secret to getting up close from Rhonda Kave, a true mermaid, as you can see below. If you’re nice, maybe I’ll share the secret with you next year.

Here are a bunch of photos. I focused on individual mermaids to see the details on their witty, handmade fishtails and baubles. Enjoy!
