    New York's Coney Island Mermaid Parade 2014


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Dawn Russell said, "I love how people are free to express themselves in any way they want. No restrictions. They just let it all hang out and everyone has a great time." She captured these images at the annual Mermaid Parade in Coney Island, New York, in 2014.

    I love going to the Coney Island Mermaid Parade. It's a day of fun, laughter, frivolity and just a great excuse to get out in the sun and enjoy. Even once the parade is over, people are still partying on the streets, in the neighborhood bars, restaurants, etc. This year New York's Mayor Bill de Blasio and his wife Chirlane and their children Danta and Chiara also attended. There's nothing else like it!
