Superstorm Sandy has damaged the seashore and so much of our beloved Coney Island—let’s not let her rain on our Mermaid Parade! As an attempt to give a boost to Coney Island USA’s Kickstarter campaign before the deadline, Morbid Anatomy invites all you sea creatures for a night of wonders in our toxic canal!

Come and join us for decadent burlesque and sideshow hosted by the Lady Aye, with legendary performer Todd Robbins, Miss Cherry Delight, Alfie Bunz, Charles Stunning, Heather Whatever, theatrical belly-dance company Desert Sin, and a silent auction featuring donations from James Taylor (Shocked and Amazed!), taxidermist Wilder Duncan, photographer J.R Pepper, Shannon Taggart and many more!
