REDDING, Calif. -

Things are heating up in downtown Redding Friday morning.

The 61st annual Asphalt Cowboys' Pancake Breakfast is underway.   The breakfast originated in 1954 when only 600 people attended.
 
This year 10,000 people are expected to show up.  They use about 2,600 pounds of pancake batter to make the 30,000 pancakes.  The event is a fundraiser for the Asphalt Cowboys to support Rodeo Week events.

They'll be serving until 10 a.m., it's on Market Street in front of the Cascade Theater.  The price is $5 for the meal.
