The Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival of Butler, Pennsylvania has long been known as a celebration of all things Jeep. People come from all over, even Canada, to celebrate in the town that is the birthplace of the legendary vehicle. A couple of years ago, they claimed the Guinness World Record for the Largest Parade of Jeeps. There were classic Jeeps in the parade, as well as more modern incarnations.
Unfortunately, the Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival lost its crown to another group of fans at the Jeep Beach Festival in Daytona Beach, Florida. That festival lined up 1,846 Jeeps to snatch the title away.
Did you really think that the group celebrating in Bantam would let that stand? On June 12th, in an event sponsored by Pennzoil, the 2015 Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival reclaimed the world record of the Largest Parade of Jeeps with 2,420 Jeeps making their way down Main Street Butler. What makes this victory even sweeter is that 2015 is the 75th anniversary of the original Bantam Jeep!
