Mermaid Parade makes a splash at Coney Island

The annual Mermaid Parade, where women and men dress as scaled and sequined mer-people, took over Coney Island on Saturday with hundreds of thousands of people in attendance.

Arlo and Nora Guthrie, Woody Guthrie’s children, were “King Neptune” and “Queen Mermaid,” respectively, and led the procession down Surf Avenue and down the boardwalk.

It was a beautiful day for the mermaids to play. See below for some of the parade’s best looks.
