WATERLOO — There are two kinds of people in this world, those who love bacon, and those who love bacon and won’t admit it.
Organizers of the third annual Cedar Valley Baconfest were makin’ bacon Saturday at McElroy Auditorium in Waterloo.
Admission price got you complimentary samples of bacon-infused goodies from more than 16 vendors. The first two events were near sell-outs, so organizers this year have introduced a new format.
The event featured area and state-wide restaurants and caterers who will present bacon inspired food samples. The admission price will provide attendees free bacon samples, a swag bag, a bacon eating contest, bacon costume contest, live music and a cash bar.
Cedar Valley Baconfest was presented by Fareway Stores, 93.5 The Mix, 1650 The Fan and Cruisin’ Oldies KCFI. Other event sponsors include Budweiser, Veridian Credit Union, Martin Brother Food Market and Hormel.
