The Mermaid Parade: You haven't seen anything like it

Whoa! The Mermaid Parade at Coney Island is a real treat for the eyes. At the annual parade in Brooklyn, N.Y., on June 21, people came dressed as mermaids and other sea creatures. The tradition, begun in 1983, pays homage to the former annual Coney Island Mardi Gras held in 1903-1954.
