OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) — The Chinese still hold the bikini parade record.

Organizers of Saturday’s effort in Ocean City to take the title from Huludao City in China fell short as only about 325 woman turned out under rainy skies. Brad Hoffman, who organized the parade for the North Ocean City Business Alliance, blamed the rain for the lower than hoped for turnout.

Organizers were trying to attract more than 1,085 to break the record set in China earlier this month.

The 25-block parade began at 91st St. and headed north with women of all ages taking part. The weather cooperated a bit with the rain letting up at the start.

The $10 registration fee for the event benefited charities including the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.
