Minn. ATVs claim world record for longest parade
SILVER BAY, Minn. (AP) -- All-terrain vehicle riders are claiming a world record for their turnout Saturday in Silver Bay, on Minnesota's North Shore.
The All-Terrain Vehicle Association of Minnesota tried to line up more than 2,000 ATVs into the longest parade documented for Guinness World Records.
Group spokesman Les Schermerhorn said they fell short of that total, but their count was 1,632 ATVs, and they now will work with the Guinness organization over the next several weeks to verify the claim.
The current parade record of 1,138 ATVs was set by the Harlan County Ridge Runners of Evarts, Ky., in 2006. Three-wheelers and side-by-side ATVs don't count toward the record.
The Minnesota group's attempt last year fell 55 four-wheelers short of the Kentucky group's total.
