The best day of the year is almost upon us: The Aquabear Legion Pancake Breakfast is being held on Sunday, Feb. 17 at United Campus Ministry, located at 18 North College Street, Athens, Ohio.

Once again Aquabear Legion is partnering with area food producers and businesses to make the meal all-local, including Shagbark Seed & Mill, Snowville Creamery, Sticky Pete’s Maple Syrup, Donkey Coffee, Fluff Bakery & Catering, Jackie O’s Pub and Brewery, and King Family Farm.

All proceeds benefit the 7th annual Aquabear County Fair, to be held this fall at several uptown Athens venues. The money raised will pay the bands and keep all of the shows free of charge.

Based in Athens, Aquabear Legion is a consortium of Ohio musicians and artists. Since 2004, Aquabear has worked with over 150 bands and dozens of artists and filmmakers from the state of Ohio.

The organization works to promote and support Ohio musicians by releasing compilations of music, putting on shows and events and covering Ohio music at www.aquabearlegion.com.

Tickets for Sunday's breakfast are $5 in advance or $6 at the door. The meal includes all-you-can-eat pancakes with Sticky Pete’s Maple Syrup and Snowville butter, Donkey Coffee and various treats, along with bacon upgrades for $1.

The breakfast will run from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Advance tickets are available through www.aquabearlegion.com or at Haffa's Records, located at 15 West Union Street.
