Mermaid Parade 2013

Yes, New York! It’s time once again to grab that shell bra, add that final appliqué motif to your seaweed-inspired man-pouch and get your ass to Coney Island for this year’s Mermaid Parade. The 32nd edition of this annual summer joyfest has Dante and Chiara de Blasio as King Neptune and Queen Mermaid, and you can expect the usual oceanic stew of massive floats, ridiculous souped-up cars and nudity a-go-go.

If you’ve never checked it out—and really, if not, shame on you!—here are some of our favorite images from Parades Past to whet your appetite. More info can be found at the Mermaid Parade's FAQ page.
