O.C. begins bikini parade registration

Advance registration is now open for those who want to help Ocean City set a record for the world's longest bikini parade.

The Guinness World Record is now held by Panama City Beach, Fla., which stole it from Australia back in the spring. The folks Down Under plan to recapture the record with an event in October, so O.C. will really have to bring it.

For the win, the town needs more than 450 women, teens and girls to show up in their two-piece swimsuits for the Aug. 25 event, part of the Uptown Beach Bash, a newly launched three-day festival feature art shows, music, food, a paddleboard regatta and a bike stunt show.

The bikini parade will kick-off at the Princess Royale (91st Street on the ocean) at 3 p.m. To join in, participants will need to pay a $10 entrance fee for adults, $5 for girls age 18 and under and free for girls younger than 10.

Organizers are encouraging families to participate - even bikini teams, by offering special discounts on registration. Go to uptownbeachbash.com to register in advance. There will also be walk-up onsite registration available the day of the parade at the Princess Royale on 91st Street from 12 p.m. until 12:30 p.m.

For more information, call 443-497-3671.
