MARYLAND HEIGHTS, MO. (KPLR11.com)Panama City Beach, Florida has sun, fun and now new bragging rights.  It has set a new Guinness world record for the longest bikini parade.  The old record of 357 was set in surface paradise, Australia last October.  But Panama City Beach topped that with 450 participants. The Panama City Beach tourism bureau cooked up the event to strip Australia of its title.

They wanted to promote the spring break spot as a fun destination.
