America Loves Bacon: Fact, and also the name of the group bringing the Baltimore area its latest ode to cripsy deliciousness. That's right, the first-ever Maryland Bacon Festival is almost here and we couldn't be more excited.
The event, which pegs itself as a cross between a bacon-themed block party and a full-scale festival, will dish food, music, cooking demonstrations, a children's area and even a bacon-eating contest.
Not to mention several full-service bars that feature bacon-themed cocktails? Oh, wait, we did just mention that.
All of the bacon festivities will be going down (our gullets) Saturday, April 26 at Rash Field in downtown Baltimore. If you get lost, just follow your nose to the smell of bacon and your ears to the sound of joyous tears.
