Exciting news (and photos to get you pumped) from the 30th birthday party and gala for Coney Island USA: Lou Reed and Laurie Anderson were announced as the King and Queen of the 2010 Mermaid Parade, to be held on Saturday, June 19, at 2pm. Yes! That's Coney Island, baby!

We can't wait, but these photos of performances by the Coney Island Sideshow, Burlesque at the Beach and the World Famous *Bob* will tide us over. We will remember this day with fondness, especially since Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz sent a representative to officially proclaim March 25th, 2010, as Coney Island Day.
