The Coney Island Mermaid Parade is the nations largest art parade, where people dress up as mermaids, mermen + other sea creatures. It almost didn’t happen this year due to hurricane sandy – but it was saved thanks to everyone who donated to the parades kickstarter campaign. I always enjoy the creativity that goes into the costumes, floats and performances. One of these days I’d love to perform – but for the last few years I’ve been having too much fun running around, taking candid photos of mermaids on the boardwalk.
