FOX5NY (WNYW-TV) - A sea of lace and glitter was at the 34th Annual Mermaid Parade in Coney Island, Brooklyn.
Participants crafted hand-made costumes to dressed up as a glamourous mermaid or their favorite ocean creature.
It is the largest art parade in the nation.
But it's not only for humans. A couple of furry friends floated in as ‘demons of the deep.’
For some mermaids, this is their one chance to make a splash.
Parade officials say there were more than 3 ,000 marchers and more than half a million spectators lined the streets.
