59th Annual University Kiwanis of Wichita Falls Pancake Festival

Over 12,000 people showed up at the J.S. Bridwell Center for the 59th annual University Kiwanis of Wichita Falls Pancake Festival. The event not only feeds hungry bellies, but also helps feed charitable organizations.

"This is out 59th annual pancake festival so we'll have over 14,000 pancakes handed out today and it's all you can eat," said Januray Jones of UKWF.

Those organizations include, but are not limited to Children's Miracle Network, Wichita Falls Food Bank and helping fund local charitable projects in Wichita Falls.

"This year back in December we gave over 700 shoes to Zundy and to Washington Jackson. Every child was given a pair of shoes those are just some of the things it helps with," said Jones.

People waited in line as long as 30 minutes just to get what they came for, pancakes.

"We come occasionally, we live in Seymour. It's a little bit of a drive, but it's worth it," said Kenny of Seymour.

In total the event raises around $100,000 for the UKWF before equipment and renting fees.
