The 29th Annual Coney Island Mermaid Parade


The 29th Annual Coney Island Mermaid Parade takes place June 18, followed by The Mermaid Parade Ball at the NY Aquarium. This year features Adam Richman as King Neptune and Cat Greenleaf as the Mermaid Queen.

Founded in 1983 by Coney Island USA, the not-for-profit arts organization that also produces the Coney island Circus Sideshow, the Mermaid Parade pays homage to Coney Island’s forgotten Mardi Gras which lasted from 1903 to 1954, and draws from a host of other sources resulting in a wonderful and wacky event that is unique to Coney Island.

Newmindspace is organizing a massive Bubble Battle that takes place following the parade.
