MARYVILLE, Mo. — The sweet smell of pancakes permeates the air near Fourth and Buchanan streets on Saturday morning.
Community members came out to a meal of pancakes, sausage and orange juice or coffee, hosted by the Nodaway County Fair board members and Chris Cakes.
Starting at 8 a.m., the breakfast offers a hearty meal before the Nodaway County Fair Parade hosted by the Greater Maryville Chamber of Commerce ambassadors.
Eric Couts, pancake perfectionist, said he's been helping feed fairgoers for some time now as he scraped away some of the more misshaped pancakes.
Karen Duty has been to the breakfast in previous years saying, "It's been good stuff."
