King's Court brings back its Stampede Breakfast for third year

It is that time of year again, when the buttery smell of mouth-wateringly delicious pancakes fills the air and the sticky savoury-sweetness of sausage drenched in maple syrup clings to your lips.
It’s Stampede breakfast time.
It matters not if you need to wade through lines of hot, hungry people in the wee hours of the morning, for it is Stampede breakfast time. It is tradition at its finest.
King’s Court knows the importance of this tradition and is bringing it back to Airdrie on July 7, from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at 209, 2903 Kingsview Blvd SE.
“It’s an annual event we’ve had for at least the past two years,” said Pansie Starker, associate intern pastor with the church.
The free event will include a pancake breakfast complete with flapjacks, sausages, tea, coffee, juice and watermelon along with live musical performances from bands yet to be determined.
“We just want to bless people in our community,” Starker said of the event. “We just want to let people know they are important and we value them.”
The family fun will also include pony rides for little ones and a caricature artist to capture funny memories for people to take home as a souvenir.
“The environment is really pleasant,” Starker said of the event. “It’s an opportunity to come together and get to know each other.”
The pastor said last year the church served close to 3,000 people at the breakfast, and added they have lots of food so no need to worry about the group running out of treats.
Participants are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item to support the Airdrie Food Bank, which Starker said, “Is another way to give back to the community.”
“Come on out and bring your family and friends,” she said. “We’d love to see you.”
