[Photo: Bowery Ballroom]With just under three weeks remaining on the Kickstarter campaign, the Coney Island Mermaid Parade has reach nearly half its $100,000 goal. Over a thousand people already contributed to keep the thirty-year-old seaside tradition alive. Now, as an added punch, organizers are planning a benefit show at the Bowery Ballroom.
“The Mermaid Parade Benefit” – slated for May 25 – is headlined by Amanda Palmer (who helped organize), and will feature “special celebrity appearances and guest performances.” Stars of the Coney Island Circus Sideshow are also on the bill.
Tickets are $25 apiece, with all proceeds benefiting this most cherished Coney tradition. And if you can’t attend the show, hit up the Kickstarter page to give some cheddar.
