MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - It’s paczki day only once a year.

Huron Mountain Bakery stops its regular donut production to prepare for the Fat Tuesday tradition.

Paczki are sold at both Marquette and Ishpeming locations on Tuesday only.

Baker Joe Heck says the treats are in popular demand, so it’s best to buy early.

“So an average February donut sale would be 1,500 to 2,000, and we will sell traditionally all 16,000 of the paczki we made today between our two stores,” Heck said, comparing the sales to highlight the demand of the treats.

If you missed out on paczki this year... there’s always next year.
