REO Town Bacon Festival

Submitted by Rob Hecksel, Lansing Resident

My idea is…

“…a Bacon Festival in REO town where people bring in new and creative uses for bacon. Such as, bacon donuts, chocolate covered bacon, bacon eating contest, bacon grease candles, bacon inspired art, bacon salt, BACON acronym contest, bacon flavored craft beer, food truck round up with a special bacon dish and a best dish contest: New innovative uses for bacon. Meat Southern BBQ could be a cool sponsor. This would be sort of like a Jazz Festival, but instead with bacon.”

My idea contributes to a vibrant community by…

“…introducing more people to different areas of Lansing, specificaly REO Town, a
wonderful, underserved area. They bring vibrancy and new life to the area. It would also promote small businesses and create a connection between urban and rural Mid Michigan, while creating new and novel uses for a commodity.”
