DES MOINES, Iowa — The hype and the anticipation continue to build for the 2015 Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival.

Tickets for the event, which is themed BaconMania VIII, go on sale this weekend. BaconFest keeps getting bigger and bigger, but that doesn’t mean tickets are getting easier to find.

Seventeen-thousand tickets will be available Saturday at 12:13:14 p.m. for the January 31st festival at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines.

Organizer Brooks Reynolds stopped by the Channel 13 News at Four Wednesday to talk with Andy and Dan about what’s new with this year’s festival.
