The motto of the parade fashion should be go big or go home.

Even dogs came out in their best mermaid impersonations.
Marilyn Monroe in octopus form came out for the festivities.

My old roommate is going to be SO mad she missed this! Sending this to her right now...
@JordanNash but honestly!! the costumes are crazyyyy cool i wonder if theres a best dressed competition
I'm going to start planning next year's mermaid outfit now so I'm fully prepared for this awesomeness when it comes around again!
