SAVANNAH — Stafford Promotions, a professional events services agency in Savannah, and the Savannah Waterfront Association are gearing up to host The Crawl of the South, Savannah’s attempt to become the world’s largest pub crawl in the world on May 31.
“Currently, the Guinness World Record for the largest bar crawl is held at 4,885 people by Kansas City, Mo.,” said Brian Stafford, event organizer and owner of Stafford Promotions. “Not only do we want to beat Kansas City’s record, we want to set the bar so high that Savannah stays in the book forever.”
A portion of the proceeds will benefit the United Way of the Coastal Empire, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Savannah, and the Humane Society of Savannah.
The Crawl of the South will begin in Ellis Square and stretch to the Rousakis Waterfront Plaza on River Street, covering 30 of downtown Savannah’s pubs and bars.
After visiting 10 bars/pubs, participants will make their way to the finish line at the plaza on River Street for an exclusive after-party.
Packet pickup for pre-registration and day-of registration will be from 1-5 p.m. in Ellis Square. The crawl’s after-party will be from 3-9 p.m. in front of Wet Willie’s on River Street.
Cost is $15 online registration until midnight May 30 and $20 until 5 p.m. on the day of registration.
