Pancake breakfast returns Saturday to Springfield's Main Street

Spirit of Springfield
The "Worlds Largest Pancake Breakfast" in 2009

Annual community event was disrupted for two years because of the pandemic

Breakfast is being served this Saturday to thousands of people in downtown Springfield, Massachusetts.

The tradition of The World’s Largest Pancake Breakfast is returning to mid-May for the first time in two years.

Along with the pancakes, syrup, bacon, and beverages there will also be free entertainment and displays.

WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Judy Matt, President of Spirit of Springfield, the nonprofit that presents the community event.

The record-setting tenure of Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno. The 2011 tornado and its recovery that remade the largest city in Western Massachusetts. The fallout from the deadly COVID outbreak at the Holyoke Soldiers Home. Those are just a few of the thousands and thousands of stories WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill has covered for WAMC in his nearly 17 years with the station.
