At a cost of $3 for adults and $1 for children, each guest will receive two pancakes, bacon, juice, milk or coffee. The recipe called for 3,450 pounds of buttermilk flour, 800 pounds of eggs, 350 pounds of butter and 450 gallons of water, enough to
make 35,000 servings. There will be entertainment from local schools and celebrities on two different stages during the event. In addition to munching on some pancakes,
Attendees of all ages can enjoy a display of emergency apparatus from the Springfield Fire Department in Court Square, and have some fun on a pony or horse-drawn wagon ride. This event has become so successful that other cities in the country have started to copy Springfield's recipe for success. The city is fortunate to have strong support from many businesses and
volunteers from the community who make this tradition a must see event.
