    Coney Island Mermaid Parade-2014! Part 1.


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Linda Glovach said, "My favorite thing about the Mermaid parade is the effort put into it by the individuals and groups. Everyone goes all out and it is truly amazing." She captured these images at the annual Mermaid Parade in Coney Island in 2014.

    And what a parade this was. It was the most intensive creative Mermaid Parade I have ever seen. The costumes, make-up, cars, floats, groups, bands were outstanding. I stayed for the whole thing and got sun burned. I was able to get right up front and took a lot of pictures. Mayor Deblasio was there with his family but he was not the hi-lite of this creative parade that welcomes summer into New York.
    The parade is sponsored in part, by public funds from the New York City Dept. of Cultural affairs.
    I put the photos in three parts, this is part 1.
    Thank you.
