The coronavirus pandemic has forced many activities, fundraisers and annual events to go virtual since 2020, and that's continuing this year with the Lubbock Lions Club Pancake Festival.

The Lubbock Lions Club announced this past week that the 69th Annual Pancake Festival will be a virtual event called Pancakes@Home, which will be held on Saturday, February 20th, 2021.

If you've ever been to the Pancake Festival, you probably saw this one coming. It's a huge event and typically there's not much social distancing going on. There just isn't enough room when thousands attend such an event.

Instead of gathering at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center, this year's Pancake Festival will be held through social media. The event will be hosted through a Facebook event page where you can show off your own homemade pancakes.

According to the press release, the Pancake Festival is the major fundraiser for the Lubbock Lions Club.

The Pancake Festival is the major fundraiser for the Lubbock Lions Club and each year provides donations to over 30 charities. We are aware of how many lives that have been touched by our service projects. This is a great tradition and the Pancake Festival is an event we are proud to present each year. It gives our entire community an opportunity to gather and support many worthy causes. This year due to the current covid pandemic, we will focus on the top four organizations to raise funds to support Catholic Charities adult eyeglass program, the LISD children’s eyeglass program, Boy Scout Troop 157, and the Texas Lions Camp.

The Lubbock Lions Club thanked their sponsors and encouraged people to visit the Lubbock Lions Club website for more information.

The Lubbock Lions Club was founded in 1929 and is the largest Lions Club in North America.
