Atlanta Hosts BaconFest, Kevin Bacon Shows Up

For the past 12 years, Atlanta has been home to perhaps one of the grossest events in the state, BaconFest, an annual benefit/carnival that raises money for Dad’s Garage Theatre, a nonprofit improv comedy venue.

While we love events that raise funds for charity, as animal lovers we’re not so into the 1200 pounds of bacon that was donated for the fest. One actor apparently was into it. Kevin Bacon. Perhaps just for a good joke having to do with his name, or because he really likes the cause (or maybe just bacon), the actor showed up at the fest to take part in the (gross) festivities.

Bacon tweeted last weekend before the event, “Never been to BaconFest in Alanta before.  What does one wear?”

Apparently he figured it out, and showed up in jeans, a t-shirt and aviator shades. He later followed up his first tweet with, “Best @baconfest ever. Support @dads_garage.”

For photos of the actor and the event, check out the Atlanta Business Chronicle’s slideshow. But animal lovers beware: there’s some fairly gruesome bacon imagery within.
