In addition to the sense of perseverance and accomplishment that comes with finishing a 5K, the organizers of the Bacon Chase have added another incentive: bacon. During their two races?the 5K Piggy Pilgrimage, which is a traditional 5K, and the 0.05K Blitz to Bacon, which is a 164-foot sprint?runners can munch on unlimited bacon bits before feasting on unlimited amounts of bacon at the finish line. Runners 21 and older can wash down the savory strips of bacon with a bloody mary, and all runners get a Bacon Chase T-shirt and a signature bacon-scented bib. The festival opens at 8 a.m. and features many bacon-themed activities, plus music.
The festive day serves a greater purpose, too. Attendees will be able to register to become a St. Jude Hero, raise money for St. Jude Children?s Research Hospital, or both.

Blue Adobe's History Hub experience combines entertaining stories about the Southwest's history with three-course dinners and other tasty Mexican treats. The History Hub first provides patrons with a history show and lunch at Blue Adobe event center, where customers catch a live-action reenactment of western history events with a historic enchilada and taco bar serving as a backdrop. Next, guests pile into a horse-drawn wagon for a tour of 15 registered historic structures, which are described in a 30-minute audio tour that never once uses the word manticore. While en route to a wine tasting at Windmill Winery, the wagon brakes for a Quick Draw session, where guests can wring up to 20 bullets out of a Colt 45. Finally, daytrippers round off their adventure by visiting the L&B Inn for a dinner of anything from the menu, including fajitas with chicken or beef and fresh veggies, or chili con carne with unlimited tortillas.
Hop aboard an antique tractor to take a hayride tour of The Windmill Winery, which spans more than 100 acres of Arizona countryside, boasting historical buildings and breath-stealing scenery. Visitors can wind through the working farm to see a collection of early 20th-century buildings plus a host of farm animals humming nursery rhymes under their breath. Wine sippers can then drink in views of two lakes, the Gila River, and the Superstition Mountains before heading into the 1920s dairy barn to test palates with five signature wines culled from small and organic wineries. Learn about each wine's origin and how to pair it with the right culinary sidekicks, then sate grumbling bellies with a freshly grilled meal served on the back porch of the First Pinal County Sheriff's House. The night will wind down under the stars with a bonfire, s'mores, and bone-chilling stories about pairing fish and red wine.
Though The Fix It Guy! mainly travels to homes to repair cars—replacing dead batteries, swapping out broken spark plugs, and fixing faulty breaks—he also can landscape the yard or take care of basic yard work while he's there. DJ enjoys getting his hands dirty while performing handyman services that include mending broken tools and overhauling lawnmowers that refuse to work no matter how many glasses of ice-cold lemonade you bribe them with. In addition to repairing things, DJ builds them, constructing everything from chicken coops to patio furniture.
