Snowmobiles Wanted for Guinness Book Record

Thursday, February 1, 2018, Sault Ste. Marie will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for most snowmobiles in a parade. The record was previously set in Whitecourt, Alberta, Canada, when 1,047 sleds participated in a parade.

Mary Jo Duvall, coordinator for The Sault Events, said the group has set its goal at 1,250 sleds, all of which must complete a full two-mile parade route to be counted for the record.

“We’re excited to mark the special occasion of 50 years of the I-500 with a record-breaking parade of snowmobiles on the Thursday before the main event,” she explained.

The parade route will end at the I-500 track, where participants can stay to enjoy the beverage tent and a food truck competition while watching Thursday’s race—The Woody’s Challenge— a 25-lap sprint undertaken by qualifying pro racers.

Parade participants will receive free admission to Thursday’s race with their parade bracelet and enjoy free snowmobile parking at that event.

To participate, all drivers will be required to have a valid driver’s license and all snowmobiles must be registered. Proof of registration and driver’s license will be required at registration. Kid’s mini-sleds are not allowed to enter.

Pre-registration is required and can be done at www.saultstemarie.com.
