Bacon Olympics comes to Kingaroy
YOU probably saw (or heard) the Bacon Olympics at BaconFest last year taking place, with activities including a squealing pig competition and more.
And with an extremely successful first year, they're bringing the Bacon Olympics back to better than ever.
Suzanne Mungall, the organiser of both the Bacon Olympics and the Little Piggies programs, said this year's olympics will include a whole lot of silly, novelty, bacon related activities.
"For one of the activities, there's a maze where they have to go through and find the bacon, all hygienically done in containers. It's a cross between being as silly as you can without being gross,” she said.
According to Mrs Mungall, after last year's Bacon Olympics, there was a high demand for a junior's category.
"Last year seeing as it was so popular, we had registrations open for only one week and it was sold out. This year, we're wanting to let kids join the fun, too,” she said.
Mrs Mungall said the Bacon Olympics will be broken down into teams of five for both juniors and adults' categories.
"A junior version will have kids under 12, with one adult in the team as a chaperone,” she said.
"This activity is an opportunity for any teens, groups and friends to get involved.”
The event will be held on the Sunday of BaconFest, August 25, in the same location as the Little Piggies and Farmer's Market stage.
Those interested will need to pre-register with your teams through BaconFest, with more details to be announced soon.
