Editor's Note: I realize this parade has been covered over various news outlets and online media. However Adam's pictures were too pure NOT to share. Please browse through the magical gallery and let me know if you would like high res versions. Oh, he also did this write up of the event:

Saturday's mermaid parade could be described as a madri gras for New York, but seeing as this is New York, it was definitely going be to more theatrical. As someone, who attended last years as well, it was easy to spot the same cast of characters making appearances. Some 600 groups of people marched this year all with some theme related to water, even if loosly related. People of all ages from kids in strollers to those with canes dressed up to be a part of the parade. The parade was a blast with cheering and smiles all around
