Another fundraiser is in the works to save Coney Island’s Mermaid Parade.

Organizers say they’ve been drowning in debt from super storm Sandy and can’t afford to put on the show next month.

They’re launching a “Save the Mermaid Parade” kick starter campaign on May 7th so they can hold this year’s event.

They’re hoping to  raise $100,000 to save the parade, which is scheduled for June 22nd.
