The current incarnation of the Coney Island Mermaid parade started in 1983. The parade pays homage to the tradition of the Coney Island Mardi Gras parades of the very early 20th century. The Mermaid parade is well-known for extraordinary marine costumes, and for the occasional partial nudity (legal in New York state). Mermaids and sea creatures of every shape and size are represented, and the audience is festive and appreciative.
