Local firemen throw cakes on the griddle at annual pancake breakfast

As a way to kick start your day prepping for the Arkansas-Auburn football game next weekend, you should consider grabbing some pancakes, sausage, bacon, and all the pints of chocolate milk you can throw back at the Fayetteville Fire Department’s Pancake Breakfast.

The event runs from 6:00 -11:00 am on Saturday, Oct. 10 at the Central Fire Station at 303 W. Center Street.

This is an all-you-can-eat affair and advance tickets may be purchased for $4 at Central Fire Station office or you can grab them at the door on the day of the event for $5. Children aged 6 and under eat for free.

Firemen will be working the grills and walking the room to help you load up with second helpings. This is a chance to grab a great breakfast and also an opportunity to meet your local firemen, check out the fire trucks, and maybe even to catch a glimpse of the resident dalmatian.

The event will be the last official duty of Chief Tony Johnson who will preside over the event before retiring from his post as fire chief after four years in the role and after 37 years of service.
