On June 23, the All-Terrain Vehicle Association of Minnesota (ATVAM) will be attempting to break a Guinness World Record™ for the World’s Longest ATV Parade. In June 2009, ATVAM broke the World Record for the “Longest ATV Parade” with 1,632 ATVs. In the fall of 2010 Utah broke the record with 1,870 ATVs.
ATVAM encourages all ATV enthusiasts to join them in Silver Bay for a weekend of riding and other ATV related activities. Organizers are aiming to have more than 2,000 ATVs participate in the parade.
Those who register by Friday, May 8, will receive one free limited edition “World’s Longest ATV Parade” memorabilia T-shirt. To register, visit www.atvparade.org or call ATVAM at 1 (800) 442-8826. Parade organizers will also be holding a contest for the most creatively decorated ATV. After the parade concludes Zups will be hosting a buffet at the Silver Bay Union Hall.
Registration and the staging area for the parade will be located one half mile north of Outer Drive and Highway 61 N. in the field in front of AmericInn Motel. There will be signs showing participants where to go. There will be ample parking on the streets and surrounding areas. The parade route will be a designated ATV trail for the day, so children can ride in the parade as long they meet all Minnesota safety requirements. Side-by-side ATV’s and three-wheelers are welcome to come, but are not going to be counted by Guinness World Records™ towards the record breaking attempt.
Attendees are asked to bring a canned food item to donate to the Silver Bay food bank; items will be collected at the parade site.
