70th Annual Pancake Festival Is Planned For February in Lubbock
Pass the butter and syrup because the Lubbock Lions Club is getting ready for another Pancake Festival in Lubbock coming up in February. This years theme? "Back in the Saddle" which is appropriate after last year's virtual Pancake Festival. And real pancakes, taste so much better than virtual pancakes.
The 70th Annual Pancake Festival presented by the Lubbock Lions Club will take place on Saturday, February 19 at the Lubbock Civic Center. Pancakes will be served beginning at 7:00 a.m. all the way until 8:00 p.m.
And at this Pancake Festival, you won't have to worry about any supply chain issues. Nearly six thousand pounds of pancake mix is headed to Lubbock along with 41,000 ounces of Pancake Syrup, 80,000 sausage links, and over 23,000 slices of bacon. And that is just the beginning.
Tickets for the 70th Annual Pancake Festival are $10 in advance and $12 at the door. Kids ages three and younger get in free. You can purchase tickets at www.lubbocklions.com or call 806-763-4789.
According to a press release from the Lubbock Lions Club, which is one of the largest Lions Club's in the nation, they have a goal of raising over $140,000 this year.
The only thing better than eating a LOT of pancakes is knowing that each year Lubbock Lions Club donates all of the profits raised from the Pancake Festival to over 30 charities. Our goal is to raise over $140,000 this year! Some of the organizations that benefited from the over $136,000 we raised couple of years ago include, the Adult Eyeglass Program, Boy Scout Troop 157, LISD Eyeglasses for Children, Children’s Miracle Network, Meals on Wheels, The Salvation Army, Lubbock Impact, Texas Boys and Girls Ranch Catholic Charities and the Texas Lions Camp for children with special needs (Lubbock children attend this camp for free).
The Lubbock Lions Club Pancake Festival is a great event to have back in person. Everyone get ready to eat pancakes!
