Sunny skies over Coney Island welcomed the annual Coney Island Mermaid Parade on Saturday. Ronald McDonald was spotted brown-bagging, and a variety of aquatic-themed body-painted ladies and gents spent the day ambling around the concretewalk. San Francisco resident Susan Laurita—who participated in the parade for the first time yesterday after attending as a spectator for the last 20 years—summed up the experience much better than we ever could: “It’s so funny—all of those years, I was in the crowd drunk,” she told the News. “Now, that I’m sober, I still don’t even know how to describe this!” Check out a lot of photos above (some NSFW!), and a nice video document of the event below.
