» A wet but rockin’ Mermaid Parade!

Every year since 1983, Coney Island has celebrated the start of summer and official opening of the Atlantic Ocean with an annual Mermaid Parade the third Saturday of June. The parade, which pays homage to the hugely popular ‪‎Coney Island‬ Mardi Gras parades of the early 1900s, is the largest procession of its kind in the U.S., attracting hundreds of professional and amateur entertainers and thousands of spectators from all over. The imaginative costumes, floats and performances are a must-see!

Also a must-see: the celebrated celebrity queen and king chosen to lead the parade. Queen Mermaid and King Neptune for the 2017 parade were Blondie’s Debbie Harry and Chris Stein!

Despite the rain, parade participants and onlookers showed up in droves. After all, TRUE merpeeps LOVE the water!

Since Ruby’s Bar & Grill’s ocean-facing boardwalk location is perfect for viewing MERpeeps in their natural element, we’re THE place to party all day long!
