    New Yorkers celebrated the first day of summer at the 32nd annual Mermaid Parade. This year NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio with his wife Chirlane and children marched in the parade. Dante and Chiara de Blasio were crowned King Neptune and Queen Mermaid.

    Thousands lined the parade route on Surf Ave which continued on the famous broad walk to cheering crowds.

    This parade celebrates the first day of the summer and this year the weather was spectacular.
    Happy Summer everyone and may it be as fun and colorful as this parade!
