Pancakes on Thursday, rain, snow or shine

Holy flapjacks, Batman, has it really been a year already since the last Lions Club Pancake Day at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center?

Yes, longwinded Boy Wonder, it has! The annual celebration of all-day breakfast is set for 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday at Pioneer Hall, with pancakes, sausage, milk, coffee and a multitude of toppings ready for breakfast, lunch, dinner and anytime in between.

This is the 56th annual Pancake Day. There’s free parking in the DECC lots. Tickets are $6 in advance ($7 at the door) and are available at the DTCU Miller Hill Office on Trinity Road, Theobald Family Eye Care on Arrowhead Road, Mr. D’s West Duluth or from any Duluth Lions Member.

The Lions hope to raise $80,000 at this year’s event for their many projects throughout the community that help people with diabetes and sight and hearing needs.
