WATERLOO (KWWL) -  It started in Des Moines and now has become a tradition in some cities across the state -- Baconfest.

It's the second year for the Cedar Valley Baconfest and another sold-out crowd came out to Mcelroy auditorium in Waterloo.

A lot of bacon creations for people to try - including bacon cupcakes, bacon carnitas, you name it.

Along with bacon eating contests and lots of food samples, there was also a bacon costume contest. 

"We're in our first line, we had the bacon bloody mary and see what else is in store for us. We've been looking forward to this for about a month and a half, two months," says Baconfest goer Katrina Merritts.

About 1500 people attended Baconfest and features more than a dozen local and state-wide restaurants and caterers.
