The Mermaid Parade!

June 25th, 2013 by


Do you believe in mermaids? A lot of people believe (or want to believe) in beautiful creatures that roam the depths of the ocean, but I’m just not sure that they can possibly be real. More likely the idea of mermaids comes from drunken sailors and particularly attractive seals. For all you mermaid hopefully we do have some good news for you, mermaids definitely exist at least once a year, and we here at your auto dealers Cincinnati loves can tell you where to find them!

They are all at the Coney Island Mermaid Parade! The yearly celebration has been going on since 1983, when it was thought up by a local artist who wanted to see the finned beauties come to life. We here at used cars Cincinnati Ohio love the idea, but we need to warn you to be careful when searching for pictures, as many of the mermaids subscribe to the Ariel seashells as a bikini school of thought!

“Welcome to America’s most underdressed parade,” Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz told crowds.

The Mermaid parade features everything from people in costume to floats, cars, live performances, music, and art. Apparently it’s a pretty crazy party and possibly too racy for some children, but a blast if you love a carnival like atmosphere!
