World record attempt with 300 combines

Harvest for Kids 2018 is hoping to set a new Guinness world record for the most combines in continuous use. Planned for August 4, 2018, in Winkler, Manitoba, the world record attempt is expected to be attended by 300 combines and 25,000 spectators.

Harvest for Kids was created to raise awareness for Children’s Camps International (CCI), an organisation that works with developing nations to improve the lives of children through camp programs.

A previous Guinness world harvesting record was set by a similar Harvest for Kids project in Saskatchewan in 2012, when 20,000 spectators saw 244 combines rumble across one field, harvesting consecutively for five minutes.

“This harvest is a massive opportunity for us to show the global audience the generosity of the broader Canadian community,” said national director Dave Thiessen of CCI Harvest for Kids. “It’s bigger than all of us.”
