Mermaid Parade

Monday, June 21, 2010

On Saturday, I went to Brooklyn to see Coney Island's annual Mermaid Parade. This parade celebrates the start of summer, aquatic & sea life, and celebrates art. There were definitely a lot of wacky, outrageous costumes. Some even had costumes speaking out against the BP Oil Spill.
It was a beautiful day, beautiful weather. And definitely breezy too.
My boyfriend & I just hung out by the beach & on the big pier, just relaxing for most of the day.
I wore a monokini with red shorts & a white mesh jacket.
pictures of Mermaid parade were from NBC New York

Below, you can see a video from the New York Post showing more of the event :)

That was a great day for Coney Island
I got there about 4PM to see the end of the Parade and then the baseball game and I had such a great time!

Coney Island is the place to be on a beautiful summer's day

Oh, I love the Mermaid Parade! Looks like a great day for it! I have a soft spot in my heart for Coney Island, when I lived in Park Slope I used to ride my bike out there a lot. You look gorgeous, LOVE that monokini and red shorts, super chic! Like a pretty mermaid!
