If you're not into the bacon dishes you'll find plenty of strips of bacon on a stick that you can snack on while you walk around.

After consuming as much bacon as you can it will be time to enjoy wine slushies and craft beer. There is bacon everywhere, live music, and games. This is one full day of fun that you won't want to miss.
