Pace yourself...there is plenty of food, drinks, and three hours to enjoy the Bacon. We went on Saturday afternoon, crowd moved well throughout the event, parking is nearby, friendly staff and vendors. Just dave a little water for the end, you'll want it after all the bacon.

No real waiting to get food. Sooo many vendors I wished I had the stomach space to try it all. I will definitely come back next year!

It was from 12-3 and we went at 1:00. Should have gone at 12:00, there was a lot to see. Good time, though!

Bacon-awesomeness. You get more than enough drinks and will walk out uncomfortably full!
