New bikini parade world record

The world record for the largest bikini parade was broken in the City of the Gold Coast, Australia.

The event was organised by a local newspaper, the Gold Coast Bulletin.

The bikini-clad women started the parade at a Gold Coast shopping mall, after which the women paraded for the required distance of 1.6 kilometres along Surfers Paradise beach.

Officials from the Guinness Book of World Records were there to confirm that with 357 women in the procession, a new record had been set.

The previous record was set by the Cayman Islands in June 2010 with 331 participants.
