Women across Panama City Beach, Fla. broke the Guinness World Record Tuesday for the largest ever bikini parade. The mile-long event brought 450 scantily clad ladies to claim the title, according to the event’s Facebook page.

Prior to Panama City Beach, Surfers Paradise beach of Gold Coast, Australia held the record. A total of 357 bikini-clad women marched there last year in their best two-piece swimsuits.

Due to Panama’s success, Australian officials said they will parade again to reclaim the title. The city could also face competition from bikini-wearers in Tampa and the South Beach area of Miami.

Parade organizers will donate $1,000 to Beach Care Services, which provides short-term emergency assistance to people in need who live in the beachfront town.
