It’s the day people wait all year for: the World’s Largest Pancake Breakfast in downtown Springfield on Saturday.

“As you can imagine, we have a whole team that’s been working for hours. We came in this morning to check on it. We sampled a little bit and I can tell you it’s delicious,” said MGM Springfield President Chris Kelley.

On Thursday, a whole crew of Springfield city leaders began making the bacon for the World’s Largest Pancake Breakfast, which will be served on Saturday along Main Street in Springfield. Around 350 volunteers help make the popular event go smoothly each year.
