St. Anthony, Idaho Aims for Guinness World Record ATV Parade
Staff

Line up 2,276 all-terrain vehicles and what do you have? A world record according to the Guinness Book of World Records. If the eastern Idaho city of St. Anthony has its way, that’s what it will have June 16, 2007: A record-breaking ATV and sandrail parade through St. Anthony to the St. Anthony Sand Dunes.

Plans are still being refined for the ATV parade and a two-day Sand Fest 2007 sponsored by the St. Anthony Chamber of Commerce.

Fremont County officials have agreed last to allow all-terrain vehicles on county roads for the parade. The staging location hasn’t been finalized.

David Loomis of St. Anthony, who is promoting the parade through his company, Bent River Productions is shooting for double the record, which was set June 24, 2006, in Evartsa, Ky., with 1,138 ATVs. That would mean 2,276 machines, which he plans to run four to five abreast on the five-mile trek to the dunes west of the city.

The celebration begins Friday evening, June 15, with a concert at the Fremont County Fairgrounds from 6 p.m. to midnight.

Saturday from 8 to 11 a.m., participants will line up their machines at a location yet to be announced. The parade will include ATVs, dirt bikes, dual-purpose motorcycles and utility terrain vehicles, each grouped according to category.

At 11 a.m., the parade will leave town along Fourth North, travel on 600 North to Miller’s curve, travel along 1800 East to 500 North, then head straight for the Desert Oasis, where the parade will end. The speed limit for the parade will be 10 mph. Only those who hold a valid driver license or learner permit will be allowed to drive a vehicle in the parade.

Following the parade, the St. Anthony Chamber of Commerce plans a trail ride from 2 to 5 p.m. to take the riders back into St. Anthony and Street Fest 2007. The chamber hopes the route will become a permanent ATV trail between the dunes and the city.

The Street Fest is planned from 5 to 9 p.m. with vendors lining North Bridge Street in downtown St. Anthony. Contact Wanda Moon, wanderb@fretel.com, or 624- 4495 for Street Fest booth registration and information.

Registration for the parade begins April 1 and will be $10 per ATV and $20 per sand rail. After June 1, registration will be $15 per ATV and $25 per sand rail.

Loomis and Bent River Productions plan a second concert on Saturday evening to say thanks to everyone who participated in the parade. The concert is planned at Desert Oasis Resort, five miles west of St. Anthony, featuring three Idaho bands.

From 6 to 7:30 p.m. will be Fortunate Son; 7:30 to 9 p.m. Darrin Allen of Pocatello and 9 p.m. until midnight will be Moulton Jess, a Driggs, Idaho, band that has opened for Neal McCoy, Taylor Swift, Reckless Kelly and others.
