NOT The Mermaid Parade

NOT The Mermaid Parade

For the past 37 years, Coney Island USA has ushered in the summer with the Mermaid Parade. This year’s parade was originally scheduled for June 20, but the universe had other plans.

But to the universe we say, PHOOEY! We’re having a parade anyway.

But even the indefatigable organizers of the Mermaid Parade know when it is time to regroup and delay. So Mermaid Parade 2020 will not take place at its traditional time on the summer solstice. Instead it will take place later in the season.

And when will that be you ask?

Well we’re not going to let the solstice go to waste. So we’ve decided to announce our plans for the 2020 Parade on June 20th, the day when we would have had the Mermaid Parade. And instead of just putting out a press release, we’re going to do it with style - with special performances! And you can watch it in realtime via a streaming broadcast direct from our Coney Island headquarters at Sideshows by the Seashore. We have dubbed the event NOT The Mermaid Parade

Performers include:

  • Insectavora
  • Pink Velvet Witch
  • Sage Sovereign
  • Serpentina
  • With your host, Adam RealMan
  • And the Mermaid Parade 2020 Reveal announced by the permanently unelected Mayor of Coney Island, Dick Zigun.
