Since 1983, the annual Mermaid Parade has attracted people of all ages, shapes, and sizes to parade around town dresses as like a mermaid to pay homage to Coney Island's Mardi Gras era (which ran from 1903 to 1954.) And when we say all ages, shapes, and sizes, we mean it. For proof, enjoy a collection of our favorite photos from this year's parade — but beware, lots of breasts and bubbles ahoy! [NSFW]
