The 2016 Coney Island Mermaid Parade
"The Coney Island Mermaid Parade is a parade that celebrates the beginning of the summer season in Coney Island, New York. The event sometimes attracts a couple of thousand actual participants, along with hundreds of thousands of spectators, some of whom have traveled to Coney Island's beach primarily to escape the heat which often marks the beginning of summer. The Mermaid parade is known for marine costumes, occasional partial nudity, as well as more family oriented fare. Mermaids and sea creatures of every shape and size are represented." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coney_Island_Mermaid_Parade
