MADISON LAKE, Minn., July 18 (UPI) -- A Minnesota woman said she will go ahead with plans to attempt a bikini parade world record despite the disapproval of local officials.

Cynthia Frederick said she wants to gather 451 bikini-clad women to march in the Paddle Fish Days parade July 28 in Madison Lake to break the Guinness World Record for the largest bikini parade, WCCO-TV, Minneapolis/St. Paul, reported Wednesday.

Frederick said she wants to use the event to raise money for breast cancer prevention.

"The money for registration, $20 in advance, or $25 on the day of the parade, all of that money will also be forwarded directly to the Breast Cancer Natural Prevention foundation," Frederick said.

However, City Administrator Kelly Steele said Frederick does not have the support of the City Council.

"The City Council is not supportive of the event. They feel that it is not an appropriate type activity for a family parade," Steele said. "The City Council is supportive of breast cancer awareness, and that is not why they are opposed to this."
