OCEAN CITY, Md., Aug. 27 (UPI) -- Organizers of a record attempt for the world's largest bikini parade in Maryland said rain led to turnout falling far short of the goal.
Brad Hoffman, who organized the parade on behalf of the North Ocean City Business Alliance, said rains Saturday caused only 325 bikini-clad women to march 25 blocks in Ocean City, far short of the 1,085 women who marched in a Huludao City, China, bikini parade earlier in August, The Baltimore Sun reported Monday.
"The weather killed us," Hoffman said.
He said the parade's $10 registration fees were donated to several charities, including the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life.
