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.

Online registration is encouraged, and costs $5 for individual marchers, and $10 per float.

After the parade, kids and their 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.

The parade will step off at Beach 106th Street in Rockaway Beach, on the newly-rebuilt boardwalk, ending at Beach 95th Street Plaza.

THE COMEDY OF ERRORS by William Shakespeare

Directed by Kwame Kwei- Armah

Mistaken identity leads to delightful mayhem in the Bard’s classic play about two sets of twins separated by stormy seas. When one pair dares to trespass into a foreign city to find the other, the comedy of errors begins and the long-lost brothers must overcome wrongful imprisonment, angry wives and hilarious confusion on their journey to a joyful reunion. This uproariously funny comedy will tour the five boroughs followed by a limited three-week engagement at The Public as part of The Mobile Shakespeare Unit, which strengthens community engagement with the arts by bringing free, world-class productions of Shakespeare to communities all across New York City.

Space is limited so please RSVP to reserve your seat.
