All 600 tickets to the third annual Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival 2010 in Des Moines on Feb. 27 were SOLD in 25 minutes. Tickets were about $33 each. The event was even moved to a new venue that could hold double the crowd from last year and they still sold out faster than a Taylor Swift concert.
The lust for proper bacon knows no limit. Organizers say they have enough bacon on hand to supply participants with 1.5 pounds EACH.
