Whether you have a yearning to transform yourself into Neptune or Venus on a half-shell, or you just want to ogle someone who would, set aside Saturday, June 25 for the 23rd annual Mermaid Parade in Coney Island.

The parade celebrates the start of summer, artistic expression and the sand, sea and salt air of Coney Island, according to organizers.

Registration begins at 10 am, if you’d like to participate. For those who just like to watch, the parade kicks off at 2 pm. At that hour, marchers set off from West 10th Street at the boardwalk, antique cars will begin to roll at West 15th Street and Surf Avenue and motorized floats will roll out at West 16th Street and Surf Avenue.

For more information, call (718) 372-5159 or visit the Web site at www.coneyisland.com.
