Burroughs Lamar | United States


This is my fourth time going to the Mermaid Parade in the Coney Island, neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York City on June 18, 2022.It is one of the four biggest parades in the City. In 2018, it was estimated, 830,000 people attended, a record.Anyone can participate in whatever costume one can create, with a mermaid or water theme. However, political and environmental interests among other causes are allowed to participate.Each person, presented their unique costume, that reveals the effort and imagination that appeared to match their personality and fanfare, From its website.“A completely original creation of Coney Island USA (the not for profit arts organization at 1208 Surf Avenue), the Mermaid Parade is the nation's largest art parade and one of New York City's greatest summer events.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.
