People, you helped save the Mermaid Parade—so head out to Coney Island to enjoy it! The parade, which attracted 750,000 people last year, starts at 1 p.m. at West 21st Street and Surf Avenue (here is the parade route).

A Kickstarter campaign helped raise over $117,000 for the parade. And King Neptune is Judah Friedlander and the Queen Mermaid is Carole Radziwill who is getting ready right now!

Wear your sunblock, too!
