Relive the glory of the Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival in ‘State of Bacon’ trailer
The Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival is over, but there’s still more bacony fun to come. In addition to things like the BACooN Ride this summer, the “State of Bacon” film is expected to be released this year. The Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival released a trailer for it Sunday on Youtube.
The movie features Gov. Terry Branstad, Sen. Chuck Grassley, Andy Fales, actor and Des Moines native David Anthony Higgins, Hacksaw Jim Duggan and others. It was filmed at the 2013 festival, mixing a mockumentary narrative with actual footage from the event.
We’ll keep you updated when a release date is announced.
