SOUTH BEND — South Bend will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the most people on a pub crawl on May 3, according to The Elkhart Truth's news partner WNDU.

The 'Bend It Till It Breaks' pub crawl will visit 10 bars throughout downtown South Bend and end at the Stanley Coveleski Regional Stadium, known as The Cove. There will be a color guard at the conclusion of the event and a fireworks show if the record is broken, according to the event's Facebook page.

Participants must be 21 or older and record rules require each participant to drink a half-pint of any liquid at each pub.

The current record holders are Crawl for Cancer LLC, whose pub crawl in Kansas City, Mo., on June 1, 2013, included 4,885 participants and 10 pubs.

More than 4,635 gallons of beer were ordered for the event.

There is a $3 fee to take part in the pub crawl. The event will benefit 10 charities.

However, South Bend will not be the only city competing for the world record. Philadelphia will also attempt to organize the world's largest pub crawl on May 3.
