BACON

How many ways can you eat a pig? You can find out at the 3rd annual Bacon Fest held November 8th & 9th in Downtown Easton, Centre Square. It’s the largest festival associated with Easton’s farmers market. In its 3rd year, the festival plans to have the biggest one yet, with an estimated attendance of over 50,000.
