At least 60,000 breakfast tickets were handed out to students in Hampden County over the weekend. The organizers of the event are expecting the usual massive turnout.
One of the big questions being asked is will downtown construction impact the event? "We're just encouraging people to wear flat shoes because the roads have been milled and there are some structures that are a little bit higher than we have to be concerned about," said Spirit of Springfield president Judy Matt.
The World's Largest Pancake Breakfast takes place Saturday morning May 12, from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. with a table right down the middle of Main Street, which the KIX Street Team will be participating.
The event marks Springfield's 382nd birthday, and is sponsored by MGM Springfield.
