Panama City Beach Breaks World Record
Posted on: March 2, 2012
An official adjudicator from the Guinness World Record announced today that Panama City Beach, Florida has set the record for the Worldâ€™s Largest Bikini Parade, with 450 women lining up to seize the record from Gold Coast, Australia.
The parade took place from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Harpoon Harryâ€™s restaurant on the sugar-white sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico in Panama City Beach. Spring breakers and locals donning a variety of bikinis were given official Bikini Parade hats to wear signaling to officials that they were part of the line-up. They also received complimentary SoBe beverages, admission to the celebration event and a memento T-shirt in appreciation of their efforts in bringing the record stateside.
Rules for participating were simple: bikinis of all colors and designs were welcome, but tankinis, one-piece suits, shorts or cover-ups did not make the count.
