Todays images are of the ‘Mermaid Parade’ taken on 21 June 2012.
The ‘Mermaid Parade’ (zeemeerminnenparade) is an annual event which promotes clean seawater. Participants dress up as mermaids, mermen, crabs and pirates.
With thunderstorms forecast, participation in the event was significantly reduced and as on cue the rain began to fall just as the parade finished.
