COMPETING for the world record on June 8 will give Maryborough's World's Greatest Pub Fest an exciting edge this year, Fraser Coast Opportunities general manager David Spear said.

It has been a few years since Maryborough competed for the title it once held.

Kansas City has since beat the record originally set by Maryborough, with 4800 people taking part in the pub crawl in that city.

And now organisers are waiting for confirmation of official numbers after the US city of Philadelphia held a city-wide pub crawl on May 3.

Mr Spears said he was hoping Maryborough would be able to reclaim its title as the world's biggest pub crawl this year - but most of all he was hoping for a safe, fun event for those taking part.

"There's certainly a sense of excitement and enthusiasm building," he said.

Mr Spear said he was confident there would be strong support for both the Relish Festival on June 7 and the Pub Fest.
