Mermaid Parade, Coney Island, 2010

yesterday Dillon, Alana and I drove to Coney Island to attend the Mermaid Parade (10th year, i believe). all i can say is WOW! we really had a great time. got some sun, had some fun and saw some spectacular costumes. some of the costumes were quite elaborate and impressive. there were all sorts of folks participating as well. The colors were amazing, some groups played music and danced, some were marching bands, lots of people on stilts. and the backdrop of Coney Island couldn't have been any better. i heard there was upwards to 40,000 people there.

if you want to see the individual pictures, from the event, you can see them here on flickr.


  1. some amazing photos! looks like a lot of fun.
    what is with the "shoot the french" banner??

  2. ha, that's kind of funny; the banner actually reads "shoot the freak". it was some kind of boardwalk game!

  3. Wow, this looks like such great fun! Thanks for sharing x

  4. Kecia, the trip took 7 hours down and 11 back. LOL Don't ask...I think we were lost in the twilight zone for a while outside Asheville.
    ;-) My eyes definitley were as big as saucers and I wish I were better with taking pictures like you...sometimes I'm amzed I even get pictures to put on my blog with the way I am with the camera. LOL
