They arrived at 10 a.m. — saving $30 in admission costs — but saw the long line for the free Fred Meyer pancake meal and decided it was worth it to buy breakfast.Sedgwick was with her sons, T.J., 13, Cristian, 4, and her fiance.“We’ll be here probably all day, all night,” she said. She brought a stroller so her youngest son wouldn’t get tired from walking and could take a nap. Volunteers Alecia Glaspey, left, 9, of Washougal, and Madison Johnson, 6, of Vancouver, sit down for breakfast during the annual pancake feed on the opening morning of the Clark County Fair on Friday.last_img read more
