I’m so excited BaconFest is back! I went last year with my family and we sampled everything from bacon lasagna to a dessert with bacon, then we played some games with the kids, and then ate more bacon.
I’m partnering with The Kroc Center to tell you about the Fourth Annual BaconFest Omaha on Sunday, Sept. 18, from 1 to 5 p.m. There’s entertainment, games, pony rides, shopping, face painting, and lots of bacon – in all its tasty forms – included with admission. Due to construction, all activities will be indoors. Having experienced BaconFest2015 in 90+ degree heat, I’m all for the indoors experience!
It’s a fundraiser for the Omaha Kroc Center Scholarship Program, so the money all goes to a great cause.
