Sydney, May 2 (ANI): An Aussie town in Queensland is holding its fifth pub-crawl hoping to earn a place in the Guinness world record for being the world’s largest.

Maryborough in Queensland had in 2005 taken the “honour” and then lost it to London in 2006, then reclaimed it again in 2007 and 2008 with a record-breaking 3000 crawlers, reports the Sydney Morning Herald.

This year the event is being expanded across the Queen’s birthday weekend, and it is not only about attempting to break the record, as the agenda includes a number of family-friendly activities including a free concert.

There are also beer-and-food matching sessions for those more interested in the taste than the effect.

And for non-drinkers, they can participate in the pub-crawl on June 7, and all they need to do is have one drink either alcoholic or non-alcoholic in at least 10 of the participating pubs and get the official pub-crawl card stamped at each watering hole.

Participants must be 18 years or older. (ANI)
