Four Years Ago: Roger Creager & Fans Set World Record [DistantReplay]
Texans know Roger Creager for his lively shows and good timin' music, but to the world he will always be remembered him as the man who orchestrated the largest river float ever. Four years ago this week Creager and a few hundred friends set a Guinness Book of World Record.
On Saturday (July 26, 2014) Creager and his people, unofficially surpassed the previous record by around 700 tubers -- just waiting on formalities.
Four years ago Creager told TWC News, "I've been all over America, and everywhere you go, it seems like fun on the rivers in the summertime is universal. In Texas, I think we take it to another level."
Creager said the previous record was about 260 people floating together in Minnesota. The singer had 1,000 wristbands printed, and they went fast. In order to break the record, the tubes had to be tied together and float for at least five minutes.
