April 12, 2014 Parade - To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Ford Mustang, members of the MHMF (Mt. Hood Mustangs and Fords Club) made plans to attempt to break TWO World Records with the largest parade of Mustangs and Fords ever! Mustang and Ford owners gathered at the Woodburn Drag Strip in Woodburn, Oregon on April 12, 2014, and with the initial count of 829 vehicles in the parade, there appears to have been record breaking numbers in attendance! With cloudy blue skies above and alot of horsepower on the parade route, those who were able to attend this "once in a lifetime event", can mark it off their bucket list and store it in their memory bank. For those who weren't able to make it, we hope you enjoy browsing through the links of pictures and videos we have posted below.
