 On June 23 rd, 2012, The ‎30th Anniversary Mermaid Parade was held at the historic Coney Island park where nearly five hundred thousand people showed up to few people dressed up as mermaids and other sea creatures.
 
Actress Annabella Sciorra was named Queen Mermaid this year, while comedian Jackie “The Joke Man” Martling was named The King Neptune.
 
Founded in 1983 by Coney Island USA, the not-for-profit arts organization that also produces the Coney island Circus Sideshow, the Mermaid Parade pays homage to Coney Island’s forgotten Mardi Gras which lasted from 1903 to 1954, and draws from a host of other sources resulting in a wonderful and wacky event that is unique to Coney Island.
 
Let’s get to the pictures of the most creative people in New York.
