Bikini parade falls far short of record
MADISON LAKE, Minn. (AP) - July 30, 2012 (WPVI) -- Only an itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny number of bikini-wearers turned out to strut their stuff in a southern Minnesota town.
Organizers had hoped for hundreds of women to march Saturday in what was billed as the World's Largest Bikini Parade.
But the number of bikini-wearing women - and a couple of men in bikini tops - at the Paddlefish Days Parade in Madison Lake fell far short of the world record.
A local newspaper reported Saturday the number appeared to be 39. Women were told they could wear shorts over their bikini bottoms once it was clear the record of 451 was unattainable.
A majority of City Council members opposed the bikini parade. Some said it was inconsistent with the festival's family-oriented nature.
