The Mermaid Parade invades Coney Island this weekend! The Club Creatures are going and will hopefully report on the shenanigans. If you're on the west coast, you can watch surfing dogs instead of mermaids (which seems like a fairly equal tradeoff to me), while people in Washington, DC can see racers in the annual Soapbox Derby zip past the Capitol Building.

This weekend also brings the summer solstice, and Stonehenge is, as always, the place to be. If you're not into that sort of pagan fun, you can attend the 500th anniversary of Henry VIII's coronation instead, or hop over to Belgium to witness a reenactment of the Battle of Waterloo! Then the Mermaid Parade will crash into the battle and it will all be a glorious mess.

Here's hoping the Mermaid Parade isn't a big soggy mess, it's supposed to storm all day. We've heard a bunch of friends that have lived here a while saying it's already insanely crowded and if it rains they are skipping it. :(

Cross your fingers. :)
