Saddle up.

The Colorado Springs Western Street Breakfast doesn't hit downtown until June 20, but the official announcement comes at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday at the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum, 215 S. Tejon St.

Commemorative tokens will be presented to representatives from the city and El Paso County, and the $5 tokens can be purchased there for a hearty breakfast later. (Children 5 and younger eat for free.)

The breakfast, which started with 35 people in 1936, will be served at Pikes Peak Ave. and Tejon St. from 5:30 to 9 a.m. June 20.

The Pikes Peak Range Riders organizes the event and culinary members from Fort Carson cook and serve more than 10,000 breakfasts - using 1,100 pounds of pancake batter, 1,500 pounds of eggs, 80 gallons of syrup, 500 gallons of coffee, 7,500 pints of milk, 2,500 pints of juice and 1,100 bales of straw for seating.

You can buy tokens at the event - cash only - or by June 18 at:

- Two Boot Barn locations: 13271 Bass Pro Drive and 5720 N. Academy Blvd.

- Cavender's: 5770 S. Carefree Circle

- Northwestern Mutual: 2 N. Cascade Ave., No. 900
