Mermaid Parade: Pirate Mayor De Blasio Kissing Mermaid Wife

June 23, 2014 | Bucky Turco

The 32nd annual Mermaid Parade took place on Saturday. Like in previous years, Coney Island was flooded with festive and scantily clad people dressed as mermaids, sea creatures and other things, including Dante and Chiara de Blasio, who were given the distinction of King Neptune and Queen Mermaid. Not to be outdone by their kids, Mayor Bill de Blasio and his wife Chirlane McCray chaperoned in full costume. And then, there was the kiss.
