More than 2,170 backers have pledged $95,344 to save the Coney Island Mermaid Parade -- just $4,669 shy of the $100,000 Kickstarter goal, with five days left.
If the total amount is donated by June 3, the city's most creative parade will go on as it has for 30 years.
Hurricane Sandy wreaked havoc on Coney Island and destroyed the parade's headquarters and performance space on Surf Avenue, leaving the 31st Mermaid Parade with a budget shortfall of $100,000. More at Kickstarter.
