University Kiwanis Pancake Festival

Thousands of people turned out Saturday to the annual University Kiwanis Pancake Festival.

This event is a tradition for Texoma families and friends to gather and enjoy stacks of all-you-can-eat hotcakes. The Pancake Festival kicked off at 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the JS Bridwell Agricultural Center in downtown Wichita Falls.

"The fee to the event is our major fundraiser for the year. We raise about $60,000 and that goes back into the community for our community youth," said Better Batter Boy John Thorton.

Tickets were only $8 at the door. This year marked the 58th year for this event.
