Family-Friendly Art Parade Coming to the Brand New Rockaway Boardwalk
DATE: Saturday, September 19, 2015
TIMES: 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
LOCATION: Parade kicks off at Beach 106th Street, and will travel down the boardwalk to Beach 95th Street
INFO: Online registration is encouraged, and costs $5 for individual marchers, and $10 per float.
DETAILS: The Poseidon's Parade is a family-friendly art parade that encourages creativity and artistic expression. It is the work of the Rockaway Mermaid Brigade, the locally-run float that has represented the peninsula at the annual Mermaid Parade in Coney Island. After winning best motorized float two years in a row – and having a blast for many, many other years – they decided, with support from Community Board 14 and the Parks Department, to bring a parade across the bay.
Participants can march solo, with a group, on a float or on a bike. Prizes will be awarded in different categories highlighting the most creative, seaside and ocean themed costumes.
After the parade, kids and families can celebrate in the "Under the Sea Lounge" with a DJ, face painting, hula hooping, the Parks Department mobile playground, crafts and other activities.
