Organized by Dick Zigun in 1983, the Mermaid Day Parade has been welcoming in summer every year since then. Combining the traditions of Mardi Gras with a host of very talented artist, musicians, performers and performance artists.

Many of these artists work through the year to create unique costumes just for the Mermaid Parade.

The parade also draws on the talents of a very talented group of Burlesque performers that have been drawn to Brooklyn and Corney Island.

A true mermaid, Muz performed in a 9,000 gallon saltwater aquarium at the now defunct New York City nightclub - The Coral Room.
