The Mermaid Parade celebrates the sand, the sea, the beginning of summer, and the history and mythology of Coney Island. Parade revelers dress as Mermaids, Neptunes, sea creatures, or the occasional wandering lighthouse and amusement ride. Besides the hand-made costumes, the parade features antique cars, marching bands, drill teams, and the odd yacht pulled on flatbed.
