My friends Tomo, Sammy and Beckto
So yet another, and possibly the last, Coney Island Mermaid Parade is history, and I have to say this was perhaps my favorite of all the ones I’ve ever been to. The weather was just perfect: breezy, cool, and sunny. The crowds were immense and incredibly positive and festive.
Our troupe the Brooklyn Bombshells, 50-some lindy hoppers dressed in our mermaid-y best, dancing up a storm and spreading lindy love all over Surf Avenue.
Our dance routine was top-notch, wowing the crowd and seeming to impress the judges.
We finished an amazing day hanging out at a bar in Park Slope, reminiscing and enjoying the good vibe. Just a perfect summer day.
