New hours and a new location marked the 2016 Perry Kiwanis Pancake Festival.

Hundreds of Perry-area pancakes lovers were fed to repletion Saturday at the 63rd annual Perry Kiwanis Pancake Festival at the McCreary Community Building.

The root of the word “festival” is feast, and that is just what ticket holders did, feeding on fresh-from-the-griddle flapjacks and choosing from two kinds of link sausage, the small and smooth and the large and wrinkled.

A spokesperson for the Perry Kiwanians estimated as many as 800 were served during the seven-hour festival, held this year for the first time at the McCreary Community Building.

Perry Kiwanis Club President Abi Albrecht was joined by about 20 other Kiwanians in serving the large crowd, which arrived all day in a steady stream.

The Perry Kiwanis Club was founded in 1939. Guest speakers are a regular feature of their weekly meetings. Proceeds from the pancake fundraiser support the club’s service activities in the Perry area.
