Celebrate and savor the bacon flavor

No need for candles or air fresheners: The BaconTown event in Ottumwa has its own signature scent.

Ottumwaproduces more bacon than any other town in the country and is ready to share its bacon joy with the world. The annual BaconTown fest returns 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday at the Bridge View Center. Mondeau Dukes, a guitar and bass combo, will take the stage with high-energy tunes, and kids games and carnival rides will help you burn off those extra calories. Admission is free, but most of the bacon snacks start at $1 a piece. Veterans will be honored with a free package of bacon to take home.
