Pancake Racing

The day before Lent should be a day of over-indulging in all the things you’re giving up for the next 40 days. And in Liberal, Kansas over-indulging means pancake racing. The people of Kansas compete against their counterparts in Olney, England by running down the streets of each town, flipping pancakes — often in wild costumes. At the moment, in the head-to-head, Kansas is winning, though throughout the contest's long history the lead has switched back and forth often.
