Largest Parade of Hearses – Just Hearse’N Around sets world record

leave a comment »

HELL, Mich., USA–The annual Just Hearse’N Around international hearse enthusiasts club lined 43 hearses in procession from Hell, Mich. to the Terrorfied Forest north of Pinkney, Mich. – setting the new world record for the Largest Parade of Hearses.

The club often has more than 50 hearses show up for the annual event that started informally in 2000, followed by the formal procession that got started in 2002.

They ended up in Hell, Mich., “for the fun of it.”

Some club members drive their hearses year-round or take them to car shows or cruises.

The Livingston County Daily Press & Argus of Howell reports that the gathering to break the record went on despite intermittent rains.

Steve Frey, a member of Just Hearse’N Around, said most club members love Halloween and aren’t creeped out by the vehicles. No one has “ever died in a hearse,” he said “They’re dead when they get there.”

The vast majority of members, he said, don’t have professional experience as hearse drivers or morticians. They simply love Halloween and hanging out with other hearse enthusiasts. Members of the club meet at several statewide car shows each year.
