Golden Fire Rescue's 45th annual Pancake Breakfast takes place July 27 during Buffalo Bill Days

Posted

Fifty or 60 firefighters will be flipping flapjacks and sizzling bacon at Golden’s Fire Station 1 on the Saturday morning of Buffalo Bill Days.

“Fire service is full of traditions,” said Capt. Tina Gustafson of Golden Fire Rescue, “and this is one of Golden’s.”

This year marks the Golden Fire Department’s 45th annual Pancake Breakfast, held this year from 6-10 a.m. July 27 at the firehouse at 10th and Arapahoe streets in downtown Golden.

Last year, Golden’s firefighters served about 1,700 people, going through about 370 pounds of pancake mix and 500 pounds of bacon.

While the event is a fundraiser for the fire department, the firefighters enjoy putting it on every year because it’s an opportunity to interact with the community, said Golden Fire Rescue’s Capt. Ben Moline.

The Pancake Breakfast “gives us an opportunity to meet the community, and the community an opportunity to meet us,” Moline said. “It starts off a fun-filled day in downtown Golden.”

Attendees will get to watch the firefighters cook the breakfasts in person — this year, they will be wearing commemorative T-shirts that mark the fire department’s 140th anniversary. The firehouse’s bay will be converted into a dining room with tables and chairs so people can enjoy their breakfast with friends and family. People can also take tours of the fire trucks, and take pictures..

The annual Pancake Breakfast means a lot to the fire department, Gustafson said, because it’s an opportunity for neighbors to get together, as well as host people visiting Golden for Buffalo Bill Days.

“It’s just fun to have breakfast in an active firehouse,” Gustafson said, adding that after all these years, the Golden Fire Department has cooking and serving the breakfasts “down to a science.”
