Pancake Day is an annual event in London and in 2012 you can join in celebrating the day of the pancakes on February 21st. In addition to eating pancakes at several restaurants there are special events taking place on this special day, for example cool pancake races. The most famous pancake race is probably the “Great Spitalfields Pancake Race.” To compete in this race you need to gather four people and bring a pan (pancakes will be provided). The race will be run along Dray Walk at The Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane and all you have to do is toss the pancake a couple of times en route.
There will be prices to be the best team, the team with the best costumes and to the best behaved team.
