IT’S BEACH TIME IN NY WITH TWO GREAT EVENTS GOING ON
Mermaids in Brooklyn
This Saturday, take a subway to Coney Island for the 31st annual Mermaid Parade. With over 750,000 visitors in 2012, the largest art parade in the nation is a celebration of creativity, ancient mythology and “honky-tonk rituals of the seaside”. From 1pm-4:30pm watch as people from the 5 boroughs show off their handmade costumes and floats. It’s quite a site to see.
The parade gets started on West 21st Street & Surf Avenue, ending at Steeplechase Plaza. To find out more about it, take a look at the website.
