One week from Saturday, downtown will be home to the world's largest pancake breakfast.
To get ready for that event, more than 100 volunteers hit Main Street on Saturday morning for a spring cleaning.
The event was hosted by the Spirit of Springfield and the Springfield Business Improvement District.
Thousands are expected to be in downtown next week for the pancake breakfast.
The annual event is a celebration of the city's founding on May 14, 1636.
Be sure to look out for the CBS 3 Springfield crew, who will be out there cooking up and serving some of the pancakes.
