1||June 19, 2010: The annual Mermaid Parade is held on Coney Island in New York City. The parade has been an annual tradition since 1983, and participants typically dress up as sea creatures — “mythical and real” — to celebrate the beginning of summer. This year, some took the opportunity to draw attention to Gulf Coast marine life that is endangered because of the BP oil spill.||Newscom/UPI&&
