It is known that a parade over the weekend of July 4 in South Carolina may have broken the world record when an estimated 3,417 boats took part.
Officials say up to 4,000 boats also took part in the “America’s Great Boat Parade” in Lake Lanier, Georgia, in September 2020.
According to the Guinness World Records, the largest boat parade involving 1,080 boats took place in Terengganu, Malaysia, on September 13, 2014.
