“It feels great. We always love to do these large events,” said Chef Darryl Harmon of Clinton Hall. “Everyone is drinking beer, eating good food and having fun.”

Throughout the celebration guests listened to fantastic live music as a select few were brave enough to loosen their belt buckles to partake in the Hormel® bacon eating contest. Only one took home the grand prize of a year of free Black Label® bacon, but all contestants simply enjoyed indulging in their favorite dish of dujour.

Attendees ate and drink while mingling and enjoying such fun activities as bobbing for bacon and giant Jenga group playoffs. And, some even came for the ultimate escape of freedom.
