New York City's first family is embracing the colorful spirit of Coney Island's Mermaid Parade.

Mayor Bill de Blasio's office tweeted a photo of the family in costume for the wacky procession Saturday at the city's most famous beach.

The mayor donned a pirate costume, complete with a ruffled white shirt, while his wife, Chirlane McCray, put on a blue wig and blue mermaid costume.

Their children, Dante and Chiara, went all out with blue skin. The teenagers are serving as King Neptune and Queen Mermaid for this year's parade.
