Flashback- Aunt Jemima Pancake Races
Disneyland has always had unique stunts to attract publicity. In the early years it was the Ken-L-Ration Dog show, Zorro Days and Pancake Races. More recent events have been the hula hoop record, the million balloons and now for 2010, volunteerism to earn your way into Disneyland. But let's go back to the Pancake Races. Here are several views of the racers behind the scene practicing as well as actually racing on Main Street. The final two images are of the winner and a contestant with Aunt Jemima from Aunt Jemima's Kitchen in Frontierland. I believe some of the film footage was shown at D23.
