mermaid parade, 2005

The weather was perfect for today's Mermaid Parade in Coney Island- perfect for seeing lots of topless ladies, that is. There were also lots of guys in full drag, ten-year-old girls wearing fish costumes, and older men showing off their vintage hot rods. Pictures have already started to pile up on Flickr- if you took some, add them there (tags: "Mermaid", "MermaidParade", "Coney Island", etc) or post them to your own site and add the link in the comments on this post!

Some examples: Bluejake, Joe's NYC, Forgotten NY, NYC Photo... and our personal favorite, a Thundercut mermaid walk sign, caught by Hellboy on Flickr:
