SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The World’s Largest Pancake Breakfast that is held in Springfield every year has been postponed to August.
According to the Spirit of Springfield, the breakfast was originally scheduled for May 15 but will now be held on Saturday, August 21 in the middle of Main Street.
“We just have to have anyone who hasn’t been vaccinated to wear a mask but other than that we are totally open. We will have masks available that day for people who want to wear a mask but other than that it will be as normal,” said Spirit of Springfield President Judy Matt
The pancake breakfast was unable to be held in 2020 due to COVID-19. In April, the Spirit of Springfield announced that the 2021 event would be postponed, but they were unable to announce a new date at that time.
“We wanted to do it before the kids go back to school so the 21st, a Saturday, is two weeks before many of them go back to school,” said Matt.
The World’s Largest Pancake Breakfast has been a tradition for Springfield since 1986 when the City of Springfield celebrated the 350th anniversary of its founding.
Pancakes, bacon, milk, juice and coffee will be included in the breakfast.
