People say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And with so many Cherry Blossom Festival activities on Saturday, the Pink Pancake Breakfast was the perfect spot to start a busy weekend.
Barbara Bates, of Macon, whose grandson was really excited to see a pink poodle, said, We got up, didnt eat breakfast and came down here to let somebody else cook.
Tommy Howell, of Gray, said his favorite part of the festival is the breakfast, which benefits the American Cancer Society.
Weve come out to the pink pancake breakfast and then were going to ride the rides. My little girl wants to ride the rides in the fair, he said.
It was Angela Johnsons first time at the breakfast, which is held at Central City Park.
Usually Im asleep this time of day, she said.
Johnson can get another round of pancakes next Saturday.
The Macon-Bibb County firefighters on the griddle will be out again serving up pancakes and sausage to festival-goers for $5 starting at 7 a.m.
