Inaugural Poseidon’s Parade – Spectacular Success


As the parade approached the 97th street stretch of the new boardwalk, I immediately thought, “This is like a New Orleans second line!” The Poseidon’s Parade was a block party in motion. The parader’s merged with the spectators and everyone just started dancing. The old and the young and everyone in between partied in celebration of Rockaway and the end of an awesome summer!

Congratulations to the organizers (the Rockaway Mermaid Brigade) for their hard work in creating a truly special community event. I have know doubt that the Poseidon’s Parade will become a longstanding Rockaway tradition.
