Subaru of America and the Village of Itasca have broken their own Guinness World Record for the “Largest Parade of Subaru Car”, the Japanese automaker revealed yesterday.
The new achievement was set on July 13 in Itasca, when no less than 371 Subaru owners from nine states gathered to break the previous record which was set back in 2009, when 339 vehicles paraded on a 4.2-mile route through the village.

In addition to setting a new Guinness World Record, Subaru of America and the parade participants also supported the PAWS Chicago and Salute Inc. charities, with both organizations receiving $5,000.

“This year we had 371 Subaru vehicles and even more attendees join us on this special day. Attendees expressed that participating in a Guinness World Records record was one of the items on their ‘life list” and they were thrilled to be able to check this item off of their lists,” said Tom Gehrke, regional manager for Subaru of America. “The best part of the event was being able to support the efforts of Salute, Inc. and PAWS Chicago.”
