Coney Island's Mermaid Parade

Having wanted to go to this for a few years now, we nearly missed it hanging around at the New York Aquarium. The crowd insanely deep as people were coming off the beach to watch, my youngest complaining his view was teeny and he mainly was stuck by "smelly armpits" which I guess is the deal if you are a nine year old in a crowd of mostly adults. As I was kvetching about this and that on the drive back, the exhausted, most patient husband pointed out - well, it's something you've wanted to do and now you've done it. Yup. Of course, now I am thinking how the parade would be vastly enhanced by mermaid librarians pushing book carts decked out like fish or seahorses or something, yes? Mermaids read? Don't be a chowderhead, read? It could work.
