It’s official. Panama City Beach has set a new World Record for the World’s Largest Bikini Parade, with 450 women participating!

Lining up on the sugar-white sands of the Gulf of Mexico in Panama City Beach, 450 women broke the Guinness World Record for the World’s Largest Bikini Parade. The March 6 event successfully shattered the current record held by Gold Coast, Australia, where 357 women paraded last year, and also benefitted local charity Beach Care Services.

Registration began at 9:00 a.m. at Harpoon Harry’s Gulf front restaurant, where spring breakers and locals signed up for the parade. Participants were given official Bikini Parade hats to wear that signaled to officials which women were part of the march. The hats were in compliance with the rules of the event, which stated that bikinis of all colors and design were welcome, but tankinis, one-piece suits, shorts or cover-ups would not make the count. Additionally, event organizers provided complimentary SoBe beverages, admission to the celebration event and a memento T-shirt in appreciation of participants’ efforts to bring the record stateside.

Following the one-mile march, an official Guinness World Record adjudicator announced that the record had been broken at 1:30 p.m.

“We are thrilled to have challenged and broken the record for the World’s Largest Bikini Parade” said Dan Rowe, president and CEO of the Panama City Beach Convention & Visitors Bureau. “Many thanks go to the wonderful participants who helped bring the record where it belongs – our beautiful beaches.”
