CLEVELAND METROPARKS "GUINNESS BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS CANOE & KAYAK CHALLENGE" HAS BEEN CHALLENGED!
Flashback 10 years ago….gas prices were $1.72, number one song was “All for You” by Janet Jackson, “Shrek” was the top movie, and Cleveland Metroparks set a new Guinness Book of World Record with 776 canoes and kayaks held together to form a giant raft on water at one time! Seven years later, Inlet, New York broke the record with 1,104 boats, and Pittsburgh holds the current record set June 2010 with 1,800 boats.
In a little over two months, Cleveland Metroparks will attempt to RECLAIM the Guinness Book of World Records with the “Canoe & Kayak Challenge” on Saturday, May 21 at Hinckley Lake in Hinckley Reservation.
With that being said, representatives from Inlet, New York have called to wish Cleveland Metroparks good luck, but to also be made aware that they plan on challenging any record Cleveland Metroparks might set, as they plan to set a new record in September 2011. So, Cleveland Metroparks needs your help to not only break the record, but to set the record so high, that other cities will need hundreds more to just even tie the record!
Don’t just read about history, help make history with Cleveland Metroparks.
