Coney Island Mermaid Parade 2011 (220 pictures)

Pictures from the 29th Annual Coney Island Mermaid Parade. Taken on June 18, 2011. The weather was lovely. I used my external flash. When it was a little overcast they produced high quality pictures. I took 314 pictures. 220 made it here. This year they let the marchers off too quickly and didn't space their starts. The parade bunched up when they reached the judging stand and caused long delays further back along the parade route. I had the classic cars in front of me for almost an hour. I noted prize winners where I could. These winners I wasn't able to identify. If you know, please e-mail (link at bottom). Also see prior parades. Original-size pictures are behind the web-sized ones.


Coney Island Mermaid Parade 2010 (273 pictures)

Pictures from the 28th Annual Coney Island Mermaid Parade. Taken on June 19, 2010. An underlying theme this year was the BP oil spill in the Gulf. I was not on the best side of the street, plus I played by the rules and stayed behind the barricades. Many non-press photographers didn't. Also see prior parades. [More than half the prize winners I was not able to identify. If you know others click link at page bottom and e-mail me.]


Coney Island Mermaid Parade 2009 (196 pictures)

Pictures from the 27th Annual Coney Island Mermaid Parade. Taken on June 20, 2009. It rained for the first half of the parade. The turnout was light. They almost doubled the route length. Also see prior parades.


Coney Island Mermaid Parade 2008 (270 pictures)

Pictures from the 26th Annual Coney Island Mermaid Parade. Taken on June 21, 2008. The weather was perfect. The turnout was heavy. Also see prior parades.


Coney Island Mermaid Parade 2007 (307 pictures)

Pictures from the 25th Annual Coney Island Mermaid Parade. Taken on June 23, 2007. The weather was perfect. The parade was promoted on the radio and in the newspapers. I estimate the spectator turnout was four times the year before. Also see 2006 Pictures.


Coney Island Mermaid Parade 2006 (263 pictures)

Pictures from the 24th Annual Coney Island Mermaid Parade. Taken on June 24, 2006. The rain stopped before the parade. There were a few drops during the parade, and then just after the March to the Sea was over it poured. This was the first parade with my new camera. I had the equivalent of a 27-300 zoom lens. A much better range for a parade than the 24-85 I was using before. Also see 2005 Pictures. (Original resolution pictures are behind web sized ones.)


Coney Island Mermaid Parade 2005 (185 pictures)

Pictures from the 23rd Annual Coney Island Mermaid Parade. Taken on June 25, 2005. Also see 2004 Pictures.


Coney Island Mermaid Parade 2004 (114 pictures)

Pictures from the 22nd Annual Coney Island Mermaid Parade. I got there an hour late, but I was still able to get many pictures. This parade is getting bigger and better each year. (Pictures at end taken by a friend.)
