SILVER BAY -- The All-Terrain Vehicle Association of Minnesota spent an entire year planning an ATV parade through Silver Bay, and organizers promised it would go on rain or shine.


They weren't expecting a flood, though.

The ATVAM hoped to bring the Guinness World Record for the longest ATV parade back to Silver Bay on Saturday, but the unofficial total of 1,060 riders fell about 800 short of the record held by Richfield, Utah.
