A snowmobile organization in central New York is hoping to gather enough people to break the Guinness World Record for most snowmobiles on a trail ride.

Local media outlets report that Osceola Snowmobile Association will attempt to break the record for largest parade of snowmobiles on Feb. 1 at the Cedar Pines Campground in the Lewis County town of Osceola, a popular snowmobiling spot in the Tug Hill Plateau area north of Syracuse.

The current record is 820 snowmobiles set in February 2004 at Roseau, Minn.

Organizers in Osceola say they hope to have more than 1,000 snowmobiles for their trail ride.

There's a $10 donation per snowmobile to participate in the ride, with all proceeds going to the local snowmobile association.
