(this sign greeted everyone on the way to Brooklyn, Marty's awesome!! He even gave the graduation speech at my junior high lol!)
These are some photos from Saturdays, Coney Island Mermaid Parade!!! I took over 300 photos(not counting the ones of me, my fiance, my sis and her boyfriend lol). All of them are on my facebook, I wanted to add more here but it's not working out right :(
There were so many gorgeous mermaid outfits over there adorned with glitter, sequins, shells, and stars! However not all were dressed as mermaids but as pirates, sailors, popeye, aquaman, coneheads, muppet mermaids(Miss piggy) and as even ronald mcdonald! People were on stilts as well, my favorite was the Uncle Sam and this other young guy that was literally dancing with them on! There was also a mini fire show which was amazing! Marching bands were playing, comedy routines, everything! Dogs were also dressed and decked out in adorable outfits as well! There were also many old fashion bikes, cycles, and cars from the past, including an old police car similar to the one from Car 54(which took place in Brooklyn!), and a car that had a very realistic Marilyn Monroe (cutout?) in the back! They even had balloons which I heard was a first! There was also a thing called "Mermageddon" based on the 2012 Mayan legend with several mermaids wearing exotic head gears and several were pulling along a pyramid with flames. There was also a Elvis "merman"! There were other cool floats that had music blasting, and the mermaids and sailor on board would throw candies, shirts, balls, necklaces, and other little things to the crowds! My hubby caught me a necklace and a shirt for himself (not sure if it was from sailor Jerry's or another one of those cars). Even though it was extremely packed we still managed to get front row seats!! The Brooklyn Cyclones mascot pointed us out too (photo somewhere down below)! We really had a great time and I can't wait to go back next year!
Two of my favorites!
Mermaids ice skating! Love the colors!
The cyclone float!! One of Coney's famous rides!
A man bathing in the car! Gorgeous colors!
Sailor Jerry's! Her outfit was so cute!
Really Pretty! Uncle Sam!
