Free Pancake Breakfast!

I packed up my tent and gear early this morning so that I could attend the Boy Scout’s Pancake Breakfast in Cheyenne, Wyoming.  I was told that it’s a free event and a “must-see” for newbies to the Cheyenne Frontier Days.

How big could it be?  Well, after I parked my car and walked three blocks to the event, I was handed a free bottle of water and ushered down the street.  Then I was told the line wrapped around the block.  I was offered another bottle of water and greeted with a tray of free cups of coffee.  The line moved quickly.  The stores were open and ready for business and a band was playing music.  This all started by 7 am!

When I arrived at the head of the line, it was an assembly line.  I was given a plate and fork and a Kiwanis member told me to keep moving.  Then pancakes were placed on my plate by a woman followed by another person handing out pats of butter.  My cakes were topped with syrup by a man pouring from a jug and I was directed to the final stations of ham, coffee, and milk.  Bench seating was set up for thousands to enjoy the feast while listening to a band playing.  Gotta love the fiddle before 8 am!

Did I forgot to mention “The Flap Jack Show” going on?  The photos will tell that story.

Summer festivals and events remind me of why the USA is a great place to live and enjoy life!
