Coney Island Mermaid Parade guide

Stock up on glitter and nautical attire: The Coney Island Mermaid Parade returns to one of the best Brooklyn attractions for its 36th year. Thousands of spectators flock to Surf Avenue-Coney Island's main drag-to watch King Neptune and Queen Mermaid lead a procession of beglittered semi-nude marchers in costumes during one of the best NYC events in June.
