Lubbock Seeks To Regain World Pancake Record

Lubbock could soon have its spot back in the Guinness Book of World Records and all you have to do in order to help is dig into a plate piled high with pancakes.

Glenn Patton is the Lubbock Lion's Club 2009 Pancake Festival Chairman.  He says, "We are going to set the record for the most pancakes served in an 8 hour period to the people of this city and surrounding communities." 

Patton also says it's only right we should hold the record since the Lubbock Lion's Club is the largest Lions Club in the United States. Lubbock previously held the record for largest pancake festival, but last February the Fargo, North Dakota Kiwanis Club took the title when they flipped 34,818 pancakes in eight hours.

Peggy White, president of Lubbock Lion's Club, says, "We will have an enormous group of volunteers who will be counting one -by-one all the pancakes and then it will be certified and sent to Guinness Book of World Records."

The 57th Annual Pancake Festival will be Saturday, February 21st from 7am to 8pm at the Civic Center. You can get your tickets early by calling the Lubbock Lions Club at 763-4789.  They're $4.50 in advance and $5 at the door for all the pancakes you can eat.   All of the money raised benefits local charities.
