It’s not uncommon to see a lot of snowmachines buzzing around Arctic Man, but on Friday they gathered for a purpose – they were trying to beat a world record. In a late-Friday update, organizers said they believe they accomplished their goal.


According to the “Guinness Book of World Records,” the previous record for the largest parade of snowmachines was set in 2015 in Alberta, Canada. They had 1,047 machines.


Arctic Man organizers thought they could do better. According to organizers, more than 1,200 signatures were collected, but nothing has been verified by Guinness World Records, yet.


The course stretched for 2 miles around the event’s base camp. As the parade started to move, more and more people began to join in.
