The California Mid-State Fair and the Downtown Paso Robles Main Street Association presented their annual free pancake breakfast on Thursday morning for hundreds of locals to enjoy.

Tickets to the annual breakfast were handed out for free from participating downtown merchants.

Organizers would like to thank their sponsors: The California Mid-State Fair Board of Directors, Paso Robles Main Street Association Board of Directors, Paso Robles 4-H, Chaparral 4-H, El Paso de Robles Grange #555, Estrella Grange, Cahoots Catering, Suburban Propane, Ranchita Canyon 4-H, Paso Robles Waste Disposal, Inc. & the Gomer Family, Steve Cichorsky Sound, Lester and Chester Rougeot, and the Downtown Paso Robles Main Street Association.
