Cadillac is undoubtedly a very well-established brand worldwide. So its no wonder that there’s a Guinness Book record for the largest parade of Cadillacs ever. Previously set by 102 Cadillacs in Leimuiderbrug, the Netherlands on Aug. 18, 2002, the record has since been held in the Guinness Book of World Records. Now though, the record has once again been set, but this time on home turf.
A total of 298 Cadillacs got together to parade down Route 2 in Barton, Vermont this past week. It was a result of an idea to increase awareness for the Floral Hall Arts & Crafts of the Orleans fair in Vermont.
“Our initial goal was for the fair but it’s become a dual-purpose event to honor Henry Leland’s legacy and contribution to this country with his inventions, ingenuity and entrepreneurial spirit,” said Lorie Seadale, the superintendent of the event. “It’s great to bring the world record back the United States where it belongs.”
The parade featured a range of Cadillac models built over the years, from the current CTS Coupe to the classic big-bodied Eldorado of the 1960s.
“Cadillac congratulates the residents of Barton and all of the Cadillac owners who participated in the parade for setting the world record in Henry Leland’s home town,” said Cadillac’s Vice President of Marketing, Don Butler. “The success of this event demonstrates that Cadillac still fuels the same passions that Henry Leland inspired in the brand.”
