Today is the 31st Annual Mermaid Parade in Coney Island. I know many members of the NYC theatre community who participate in this annual event (any excuse to show off their costuming skills) and they always have fun.
This is a particularly important year for the parade, which nearly didn't happen due to the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy. If you want to enjoy the beautiful weather and support the Coney Island community, attending today's parade is a great way to do it.
If you can't make it to the parade, keep an eye open on social media. There are bound to be tons of pictures.
