Coney Island Mermaid Parade

The Coney Island Mermaid Parade is the largest art parade in the nation. More than 3,000 creatives and over half-a-million parade-goers descend upon the festive, seaside neighborhood located in Brooklyn, New York to celebrate ancient mythology, creative expression, and community pride. The parade was founded in 1983 by the non-profit arts organization Coney Island USA.

The 37th annual iteration of the parade will start at West 21st Street and Surf Avenue and roll east to West 10th Street. At West 10th Street, the parade then turns south towards the boardwalk. Cars and Motorized Floats continue down Surf Avenue, passing W. 10th Street and exiting the parade. At the Boardwalk, the marchers and push-pull floats turn west and head towards West 17th Street. At Steeplechase Plaza, the Parade disbands.

Immediately after the last participant passes the review stand at West 19th and Surf Avenue, parade founder Dick D. Zigun leads the King and Queen procession from the review stand at 19th and Surf Avenue, through MCU Parking lot, and on to the beach for the official Beach Ceremony, officially opening the beach for the summer swimming season.

The Coney Island Mermaid Parade is a one of a kind New York City event. Don’t miss it!

Camp: Notes on Fashion at The Met Museum

Camp: Notes on Fashion, the Costume Institute’s Spring 2019 exhibition at The Met Museum Fifth Avenue, explores the origins of camp’s exuberant aesthetic. Utilizing Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay “Notes on ‘Camp'” for its framework, the exhibit examines the abundant expression of irony, humor, parody, pastiche, artifice, and theatricality in fashion.

On display at this annual fashion extravaganza, you’ll see over 250 objects dating from the seventeenth century to the present. Prime examples of the Camp aesthetic include a large variety of shoes, dresses, handbags, accessories, and so much more. The exhibit is a great way to increase your understanding of the history of fashion design.  And with all the bright, playful colors, it’s also the perfect way to punch up your Instagram feed. So, plan your outfit carefully and keep your camera at the ready for this immersive, one-of-a-kind exhibition.

The exhibition is located in The Met’s Gallery 999, and runs from May 9, 2019 through October 8, 2019.
