    Coney Island Mermaid Parade float!

    This is one of the floats that will carry the mermaids at the 32nd annual Coney Island Mermaid Parade coming up this Saturday. It was at my friend Rico's house on Avenue Z in Coney. He has an auto repair shop and this is his tractor rig that will carry some of the registered mermaids for the historic parade.
    The Mermaid parade is the largest art parade in the nation. It's a magical celebration of history, mythology, imagination and art interpretation. Everyone can dress up as a mermaid or sea creature and it also acknowledges the long time residents who live on Mermaid and Neptune avenues in Coney.
    It's an amazing parade, with lots of celebrities, artists, costumes and people out and about dressing up and having fun for an afternoon. And there is a Mermaid Ball afterwards at MCU park.
    If I attend, I will go with my friend as the duo from the old Hollywood classic "Mr Peabody and the mermaid." But I am not certain of my costume yet..
    The parade is scheduled for June 21, 2014.
