UCM sets world record

Homecoming Parade Makes History

 

Parade Aerial

On Oct. 23, 2021, in recognition of the university’s 150th celebration, UCM set the world record for the “Largest Ridden Parade of Mules.” A total of 50 volunteers came from across Missouri and neighboring states to ride their mules in the parade, which coincided with the state’s bicentennial celebration. With the mule being both the state animal and the university mascot, there was no shortage of enthusiasm from the community to help mark these anniversaries and achieve a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title!
