Pancake Day festivities will get under way Saturday morning with pancake flipping, eating, and cooking contests at the Seward County Event Center, 1040 Stadium Drive.
Registration for the eating and flipping contests will be from 8 to 9:30 a.m. in the southeast hall of the center. 
The flipping and eating contests will begin at 10 a.m. The winner in the flipping contest is the person who can flip a flapjack the most times in a three-minute period. (Division I flips for a shorter time.) This contest is open to all ages, with contestants flipping in three separate age divisions (I: 7 years and under; II: 8 to 13 years; and III: 14 years and older).
The pancake eating contest, set to begin immediately after the flipping contest is over, requires entrants to compete to see who can completely consume a set number of pancakes in the shortest amount of time. 
The eating contest features the same three age divisions as the flipping contest.
The flapjacks will be the same size for everyone, about five inches in diameter. Division I contestants will be required to eat one pancake, division II pancake lovers will consume three flapjacks each, and those aged 14 and older will be hurrying to down five pancakes each. There is no entry fee for either contest.
The annual Pancake Day cooking and recipe contest, set for 11:30 a.m. Saturday, is open to anyone age 12 or older living within a 70-mile radius of Liberal.
Those interested in entering may pick up entry forms at the Liberal Convention and Tourism Bureau, One Yellow Brick Road. Contestants will be given a complete copy of the rules when they pick up an entry form. Entry forms and rules may also be downloaded at www.pancakeday.net.
Completed entry forms must be returned to the Liberal Convention and Tourism Bureau by 5 p.m., Thursday. Entrants will prepare their dishes and bring them to the Seward County Event Center Saturday morning.
The public is invited to attend and to sample the dishes after winners are announced.
Pancake Day merchandise, including T-shirts, breakfast buttons, aprons, tote bags and more, will be for sale at the Event Center from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and from noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. Tickets for the Christian Artist Showcase and the Talent Show will also be for sale at the Event Center.
