2023 Mermaid Parade
Jun 17, 2023
The Mermaid Parade is back! The 40th Annual Mermaid Parade returns June 18th after a pandemic pause.
The Mermaid Parade has earned its salt as New York’s official start of the summer season, with no destination better for the kick-off than the one and only Coney Island.
Brooklyn’s longest-running art parade mixes a healthy dose of do-it-yourself creativity with old-fashioned civic pride. Named for the lovely New Yorkers who come to Coney Island baring golden skin in unique, scantily attired costumes, the Mermaid Parade is actually a tribute to the seaside resort’s long forgotten Mardi Gras (1903-1954). Today, it’s also the country’s largest art parade.
