Mermaid Parade 2013

While their was some worry the Coney Island Mermaid Parade might not happen this year, the crowd-funded 2013 edition went off without a hitch on Saturday (6/22); perfect weather, and with barely a stitch of clothing. It was the 30th anniversary of the Mermaid Parade this year with Judah Friedlander and Carole Radziwill as this year's King and Queen. Pictures from the parade are in this post.

They continue below...

Getting dressed up is fun... Just the other day, I went to the club dressed up as a pita triangle.

Great set, thanks for sharing! (I'm the ocean wave walking with the Brooklyn Bombshell Revue swing dancers)

Many of the boobs showcased here seem to be more Sea-Urchin style as opposed to mermaid style.

Sweaty hoards of glittery fat tits.

I approve any cause that causes slutty dress.

saggy titty fest 2013

Not anything like I expected. I thought mermaids/mermen had fins and swam in the sea? This was just any reason to let it all hang out- or hang down (really saggy boobs, ladies!), hang over (bellies over the edge of their costumes. Ugh), Or literally dress any way you want. Not impressed. Sorry.

Ummmm... at least the boardwalk looks like it's in good shape?

Heavy chicks in the Mermaid Parade is as dependable as skinny skanks on Halloween.

You don't get what you want, you get what you deserve.

Women nowadays are thinking they are cool without clothes, they didn't know it's indecent and they are loosing other's respect to them.

It was really a great event on Saturday.
It was a perfect blue sky and a perfect temperature of 80 F.

The costumes were so colorful and everyone put so much work into the costumes.

The crowds were fantastic.

I also created a YouTube slideshow:

I also created another YouTube movie showing the actual parade:

this cost 100K?

Posted by Anonymous | June 25, 2013 12:07 PM

Seriously... $100K? Where did all that kickstarter money go???

Posted by Anonymous | June 25, 2013 7:33 PM

dear anonymous pussies, do you get off typing negative horsesh*t all day at your keyboard?? this parade is one of the most amazing parts of nyc's fun history... it's been here since before you moved here and it will be around long after you're gone and have retreated back to your sh*tty hometown. and guess what? most of you will end up with those same saggy tits... either on you or married to them.

Posted by joeboo | June 26, 2013 5:48 PM

Seriously though, weren't there any Mermaids at the parade or was it all skanky hippie chicks???

Posted by Anonymous | July 5, 2013 3:04 PM

This looks like the shittiest event ever

Posted by Nylah | September 29, 2013 12:23 PM

These Mermaids were beautiful on the inside, and really really HOT on the outside... I wish i was a young man again!!!!! oops.. well at least they made me feel young for a little while!!!

Very unique sound. I've loved it from the first time I heard it, like other songs on this album.
