Sunday, thousands of people took over Main Street in Springfield not only to celebrate the city’s 382nd birthday, but to mow down some pancakes and bacon in the single largest gathering there is for the two breakfast favorites.
The world’s largest pancake breakfast a day of fun, but it wasn’t without debate.Volunteers had the batter pouring early and the bacon as crisp as can be, but the world’s largest pancake breakfast wasn’t without controversy. Many had to choose between the traditional syrup and what resembles an ice cream sundae.Some loved chocolate syrup, some loved strawberry syrup and others enjoyed whipped cream and sprinkles.
While the great debate of our time remains undecided at this point, Charles Roman tells Western Mass News that community is what the largest breakfast around is about.
Just about everything there was donated, made and served by volunteers.For years Springfield and Battle Creek, Michigan dueled over this world record meal. Michigan finally gave up and stopped counting servings and Springfield never looked back.
Thank you for stopping by and saying hi to the 'Western Mass News' team...we were happy to serve you!
