Kiwanis Pancake Karnival

Volunteers spend their day flipping batter into 30,000 pancakes

Volunteers were busy flipping batter into 30,000 pancakes for a cause.

Thousands of people lined up to fill their plates with hot off the grill pancakes and sausages.

Three hundred and fifty volunteers were busy serving nearly 10,000 to 12,000 guests from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Kiwanis uses the money raised from the pancake feed to donate to the youth projects and charities in the community.

Volunteers say the community is always ready to support flipping for kids.

“The community has supported it for so long I think because they see the need. We have a need to support the youth. We do a great job as a community doing that, but it always feels good to be able to maximize what we have coming,” said Event Coordinator Jason Morken.

They held the Guinness World Record in 2008 for serving more than 34,000 flap jacks in an eight–hour period.

This is the 57th annual pancake feed.
