The Mermaid Parade 2020! The Tail-a-Thon! Marching to Benefit Charity! Saturday, August 29th!

The 2020 Mermaid Parade is a TAIL-A-THON and will take place on 8/29.

So, what's a Tail-a-Thon?

Well, we love the Parade community too much to host the Parade in our typical fashion. The thought of any of you risking your health is simply too much for us to bear.  On the other hand, the Parade is about people showing off their creativity, celebrating summer, having fun and COMING TOGETHER. So how do we come together and avoid jeopardizing our health?

The Parade will be DE-CENTRALIZED. That means people will still be able to come together at venues around the globe to celebrate with friends. It won't be the hundreds of thousands of people in one physical space that we normally have - but  all of these venues will be connected via video streams to the Parade Tech Center - where our team of Coney Island Video Aces will combine the streams and broadcast out to the general public.
