Mermaid Parade 2008

I was in NYC last weekend visiting friends and attending a bachelorette party and it just happened to overlap with the Mermaid Parade. The Mermaid Parade is wonderful. It takes place every year in Coney Island and different groups dress up like sea creatures in attempts to win Queen Mermaid and King Neptune (like kind and queen of a prom). It is a crouded event, but Jonathan, Lisa, and I made our way through the crowd and found a pretty good viewing area. Here is what we saw:

Some choreographed mermaids dancing to Michael Jackson's "Bad."

Rediculous Superheroes (notice woman's best friend)

Some sort of crazy machine.


Obama supporters.

Metrocard Mermaids. Yes, all of that was made out of metrocards. And they were throwing metrocard bracelets and necklaces to the audience.
