If you happen to own a Cadillac, pay attention, as you may help set a world record come August 17th of this year.
The small town of Barton, Vermont is setting a huge goal to host the world’s largest Cadillac parade ever assembled, which needs at least 103 Cadillac models to participate in a ride that will start at the town high school and end at the Orleans County fairgrounds. But like everything these days, there are a few hurdles.
For one, it will cost at least $7,500 plus travel expenses to have a Guinness adjudicator verify the record. Such required coin usually requires a sponsor, and while some tentative fundraising is currently in place, there are no guarantees their efforts will be enough. And though General Motors has been approached to help put together the event, no decisions have been made yet. If they do agree to fund the verification expenses, the company will get the naming rights to the 145-year-old grandstand at the county fairgrounds, along with the fuzzy feelings of making a dream of Barton possible.
So, if you want to be a part of possibly the largest Cadillac meet ever, visit the Orleans County Fair webpage for more information.
**Update: You don’t need to be a resident of Vermont to participate in the Cadillac parade.
