Their hair billows in brilliant hues, their dresses end in fishtails, and their joy fills the train car. Coney Island USA Presents: The Mermaid Parade - Surf Ave, Brooklyn, NY - Rated based on Reviews "Every year I'm going to this.

      The Mermaid Parade which takes place during the Summer Solstice, is a hodgepodge of different rituals taken from several cultures. I include in the book a ritual to open the ocean. King Neptune and Queen Mermaid cut four ribbons along a path on the beach which represent the four seasons, then, they jump in the waves, throwing various fruits in.   And then there are the people. My favorite image in the book isn’t Julián in his mermaid dream sequence (though it is pretty good). It’s not the Mermaid Parade itself or the old ladies in the pool. It’s a simpler spread than all of those. Julián is dressed in his mermaid costume, walking down the street with Abuela, holding onto her arm.
