“Connecting The World With Pancakes” 2019 Parade Theme

Joe Denoyer - January 17, 2019 10:01 pm

The Liberal Rotary Club is now taking entries for the 70th International Pancake Day Parade. This year’s theme is “Connecting the World with Pancakes”. The parade will start at 3 pm and is the final event of the International Pancake Day celebration on March 5th, 2019.

The annual parade starts at the corner of 11th and Kansas Avenue and ends at the intersection of Kansas Avenue and Trail Street. Parade participants will be assigned spots in and around Light Park.  There will be prizes in each of 5 divisions. First prize in each division will earn $150, second $100, and third garners a prize of $50. Entries will enter in one of the following 5 divisions: Commercial, Non-Profit Organizations, Schools, Antique Automobiles and Equipment, and Motorized Vehicles. Each year we select three judges that will review parade entries and score them on originality, creativity, and effort.  Items such as candy and toys may be given out along the parade route, but we ask that none of the items are thrown into the crowd for every ones safety.
Mike Brack, Rotary Club member and Parade Chair said, “After we receive your entry, you will be emailed a detailed map and instructions 2-3 days prior to the parade. Each entry is responsible for its own signs and other items for identification during the parade. We would like everyone in the parade to be mindful of this year’s parade theme, “Connecting the World with Pancakes” and incorporate it into their entry. The parade is always fun and some of the past entries are long remembered, such as Buddy Heaton riding his buffalo in the parade, the Rainbow Bread truck and it’s miniature loaves of bread, fly overs by Lyddon Aero, That Liberal Band along with the West and South Junior High Bands, Chief and Princess Satanta, local and state officials, and great support from the local churches, civic clubs, car clubs and the City of Liberal and Seward County.”  Anyone that needs additional information should call Mike Brack at 620 482 0466 or go to www.pancakeday.net
