Editor's note: As of Wednesday, August 18, the Mermaid Parade has been canceled.
Kiss summer goodbye at this eclectic (and historically jam packed) celebration, featuring revelers decked out in their most outrageous sea themed costumes. 

Stunning vintage cars roll down the street alongside marching bands, gleefully glamorous floats, and all the wild and wacky mermaids, pirates, Neptunes, and other creatures.  There is some mild nudity, mostly topless ladies with pasties, but it's not much more than you'd see on the beach, and kids adore (and even march in) this fest.
