Bacon Fest is on Sunday, so we want to make sure you know everything that is happening with the event.

It's FREE to enter!

That's right -- to walk into BaconFest costs you nothing. So that means if you are attending one of the many other events downtown this weekend, walk down to Union Plaza and enjoy all the bacon-y goodness at your leisure -- whether it's food, beverages, shaved ice, etc.
