I’m back in New York for the summer in search of New Orleans-like events.

The best one so far…the annual Mermaid Parade at Coney Island which just celebrated its 25th anniversary.

New Orleans has a lot more parades, but in Coney Island they can take their parade into the sea, which they did.

Lots of New Orleans influences here. Note “St. James Infirmary” being played as the brass band marches back to shore.

Just discovered this one on YouTube. It’s by someone called BrothaE. It’s called “Dreaming.”
