07/04/13 204 W - + 1 - 1 Would You Believe a World's Record Fire Truck Parade in Warrenton?


That's what the planners of the Thirtieth Annual Warren County Firemen's Day Parade are hoping for on Saturday, September 28, 2013. To help celebrate the event they're going to try to break the Guiness World Record for Most Fire Trucks in a Parade. The prior record of 159 was broken in Atoka, OK, on January 20, 2012. They had over 300 fire trucks from all over Oklahoma., and established a new world's record of 221 fire engines.1 What do you think, can we beat that between North Carolina and Virginia??

Note that for the purposes of the record, a fire engine is defined as a (1.) vehicle that is or has been in service with a fire brigade service and (2.) is capable of putting out fires. Support vehicles are not eligible. Bring out your rigs! Can be motorized, horse-pulled, or hand-pulled. After the parade, the annual firefighter competition will get underway at the Warren County Recreation Complex. Visit this Facebook event page for more details. Contact the Warrenton Fire Department if you can participate. See you there!

1How long is such a parade? Let's say average length of 28 feet. Multiplied by 221 gives over a mile of end-to-end apparatus! Total of 6,188 feet!
