"Baconfest" to come to Ames


Thousands of people attend the growing bacon festival in Des Moines. Now, an Iowa State University student is hoping to see the same out turn in Ames.

ISU Junior Jake Swanson is planning Baconfest in October with the help from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. Swanson was the Iowa Pork Producers Association's Pork Ambassador in 2012. 

The Ames event will be at Iowa State's central campus. It will be free but people can buy "Bacon Bucks" to trade for food.
