Mayor Sarno states, “What an amazing event! The turn out was tremendous and everyone had a great time! I want to thank Spirit of Springfield President Judy Matt and her dedicated team, and all of the sponsors, volunteers and supports for helping to organize such a wonderful World’s Largest Pancake Breakfast. This family-friendly and wonderful event drew thousands to our downtown to enjoy a warm breakfast of pancakes, bacon, coffee, juice, milk and more. I also want to thank all of the workers and volunteers; without them this World’s Largest Pancake Breakfast wouldn’t be possible. Special thanks to our Springfield Police Officers and Firefighters, DPW workers and Parks personnel for their efforts too. This was such a wonderful event that really showcased the beautiful mosaic of our city of Springfield. The energy and vibrancy were simply magnificent and a great way to have kicked off our Mother's Day weekend.”
