The city held its official invitation to the public for the breakfast Wednesday morning at the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum. During the event, Colorado Springs City Council members and El Paso County Commissioners were given large commemorative tokens for this year's events.

Another popular food option is returning to this year's Western Street Breakfast.

"It's not new this year, but last year, the big deal was the first time we've served sausage in the history of the event so we've got year two of sausage coming up, so come down and check it out," said Travis Wiens, Co-Chair of the Colorado Springs Western Street Breakfast.
