The Mermaid Parade is Coney Island’s official right welcoming the Summer season. This year’s parade brings some star power with actor Harvey Keitel as King Neptune. I’m looking forward to this year’s parade and the floats.
2009 Mermaid Parade is Saturday, June 20th, 2PM! Rain or Shine!
King Neptune Mr. Harvey Keitel and his Queen Mermaid Daphna.
Special Appearances by The Uptown String Band from The Philadelphia Mummers Parade! Monster Truck ‘Blue Thunder’ performing a parade prelude. Performers from Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey’s Boom A Ring.
After the Mermaid Parade the Mermaid Parade Ball will be held at Dreamland Roller Rink. The Ball will run in 2 skating sessions 5:30pm-8:30pm and 9pm-Midnight $20 (skate rental $5 or bring your own).
