SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The World’s Largest Pancake Breakfast will be held this May in downtown Springfield.
The event will be held on Saturday, May 13 from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Main Street from State Street to Bridge Street. This year’s breakfast will celebrate Springfield’s 387th birthday. Pancakes, bacon, coffee, juice and milk will be available.
This year’s honorary chair for the pancake breakfast will be Springfield Police Superintendent Cheryl Clapprood.
“It’s great for the officers, the officers love it. I bring down some K-9’s, we bring down some of our specialty vehicles and they show them off to the kids, they talk to the kids about being a police officer,” said Clapprood.
“This is like the beginning of the season, so we’re very happy to kick this one off. Hopefully we have good weather, its the anniversary of the city. The city was founded May 14th, 1636 and that’s why its always closest to that date,” said Spirit of Springfield President Judy Matt.
22News will be among the many exhibitors along Main Street during the pancake breakfast. If you see our tent, come on over and say hi!
