  Most fire trucks in a parade-Casselton parade sets world record
 CASSELTON, N.D., USA -- The town of Casselton recruited 181 fire trucks from throughout the Upper Midwest to take part in the Cass County Summerfest parade-setting the new world record for the Most fire trucks in a parade.

   Photo: More than 80 fire departments from North Dakota, Minnesota and South Dakota contributed to the lineup, forming a river of red that winded more than a mile west of town before the parade. (enlarge photo)

   Greg Kempel is the Casselton ambulance crew member and winery owner who led the effort.

   The trucks mostly came from North Dakota. But there were also fire trucks from Minnesota, South Dakota, and even Oklahoma.

   There were many vintage trucks in the parade, dating back to the 1920s and 1930s, said the Sims. The trucks from the farthest away was from Belle Fourche, South Dakota, at 470 miles.    

  But perhaps no one traveled as far as Larry Cox, 55, a semi-retired school bus driver from Edmond, Okla. I just wanted to be part of history, he said.

   The previous Guinness world record for the Most fire trucks in a parade is 159 and was achieved by Vogt Ltd., Fire Service Accessories and Vehicles in Oberdiessbach, Switzerland on 28 April 2006.
