OCEAN CITY, Md. — A city in China still holds the bikini parade record after a failed attempt in Maryland.

Organizers of weekend effort in Ocean City to take the title from Huludao City in China fell short. Only about 325 woman turned out under rainy skies Saturday. Brad Hoffman, who organized the parade for the North Ocean City Business Alliance, blamed the rain for the poor turnout.

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

The 25-block parade included women of all ages.

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