Madison, Wis., snags Guinness record for longest hybrid parade
This was the cheese-loving lake community of Madison, Wis., which scored a Guinness world record on Sunday for the longest hybrid parade.
Apparently, having the highest percentage of people with PhD's wasn’t a good enough record. Bet it feels good beating Belgium, which held the previous title with a measly 140-car event last year.
Starting and ending at the Smart Motors dealership, the 2.1-mile route was crammed with Toyota Priuses, Ford Escape hybrids, Honda Insight hybrids and more, with drivers from 10 states and Canada.
The vehicles, according to organizers, stuck mostly to their electric modes, making it one of the quieter parades in memory.
