Hunts Point kicked off summer by wading through the neighborhood at the 11th Annual Fish Parade on Sat., June 21. Parade-goers decked out in marine garb marched from Riverside Park to Barretto Point Park, where a festival was set up on the shores of the East River with music, vendors, and art workshops. Modeled after Brooklyn’s Coney Island Mermaid Parade, the Bronx’s seawater-themed celebration — far superior! — was founded in 1993. It’s been fishy in the right way ever since.
