One of the country's best parades is Coney Island's annual Mermaid Parade. Saturday's event marked the parade's 25th anniversary, and it was a colorful, glittery festival of fun.

Browse through some of the highlights for some out-of-the-ordinary makeup and hair looks — it's guaranteed to stave off a case of the Mondays.
