23rd Annual Mermaid Parade in Coney Island

Every year I turn on the news or pick up the paper and see the reports about “this year’s” Mermaid Parade. And every year I (once again) regret having missed it and vow that I will attend the next parade. Then I forget about it for another year.

But this year was different — I made the pilgrimage to Coney Island. The day was clear and sunny, the crowd was happy and friendly, and even after the parade ended, mermaids, mermen and sea monsters strolled and posed along the boardwalk.
