Community celebrates 60 years of Goshen Pancake Day

GOSHEN, Ind. -- For the 60th year, the Salvation Army of Goshen opened its doors bright and early at 6 a.m. to host their annual pancake day.

While a typical pancake breakfast event might last a few hours, this breakfast takes it to a whole new level, running a total of 13 hours from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Over the course of the day, volunteers cook up and serve more than 9,000 pancakes to community members and serve close to 2,000 people each year.

Event organizers Joseph and Kendra Hixenbaugh are relative newcomers to the Goshen community but have already grown close with some of its residents.

Both believe that attendance numbers will be strong this year as it's just the second breakfast to be held post-pandemic. 

The Salvation Army of Goshen is looking to reach their goal of more than $83,000 raised, and all funds from the breakfast go toward reaching that goal.

Funds received will stay in Goshen and support various different Salvation Army programs. 

Tickets for the all-you-can-eat buffet are $7 and can be purchased ahead of time or on-site.
