Members of the Kearney Volunteer Fire Department fed the masses Saturday morning, just in time for the UNK Homecoming parade.
It's the 30th year for the event, which also doubles as a fundraiser for fire education.
Officials say it's a great way for community members to see the department out of uniform.
"A lot of times when we show up to a fire scene people don't really see us face to face and that's because we're busy doing what we need to do," said KVFD President Brad Isaac. "This way they get to come out and visit us personally. We have a lot of guys in the background doing stuff and we get to meet the public. They like to thank us which is great, but we like to do it for the public and it's all volunteer."
This pancake feed is one of the department's biggest fundraisers. The fire department is also celebrating its 135th anniversary this year.
