Tuesday is International Pancake Day, and there are several locations throughout the Hudson Valley where you can pick up a free stack of flapjacks.

To celebrate everyone's love of pancakes, the International House of Pancakes is giving out free short stacks of buttermilk pancakes to everyone who stops by any of their locations between 7am and 7pm on February 27. The yearly promotion usually creates lines that snake out of most locations starting early in the morning.

In exchange for the free pancakes, IHOP is asking patrons to make a donation to the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Since 2006, the pancake holiday has raised almost $30 million to help sick kids.

It doesn't get better than eating some free pancakes and helping out the Children's Miracle Network at the same time. Here are some Hudson Valley IHOP restaurants that you can visit on Tuesday:

  • Poughkeepsie - 2250 South Road
  • Newburgh - 44 Route 17K
  • Middletown - 155 Dolson Avenue
  • Monroe - 290 Larkin Drive
  • Spring Valley - Spring Valley Marketplace
  • West Nyack - Palisades Center
