Bacon, (Bourbon) And Beach Music

Saturday was a perfect day for the Bacon, Bourbon and Beach Music Festival in our home town. The location was Windsor Castle Park.  You may recall this post from last fall when Motor Man and I helped launch a hot air balloon from the park.

When we arrived about 30 minutes after the 11:00 a.m. start of the festival Saturday, folks were beginning to stake out spots on the grounds. In this picture, you can see the old red barns to the right, and the chimneys of historic Windsor Castle to the far left.

A short time later, the crowd had definitely grown…

Throughout the afternoon, bands played the oldies Beach Music many of us remembered.

This gal was the winner of the Bacon Eating Contest: a half pound of bacon in one minute, 20 seconds.

The traveling Virginia Is For Lovers’  L-O-V-E sign was there for the occasion, so we had our picture taken with it (again). That’s Windsor Castle in the background.

Included with admission to the festival was a half pound (cooked) bacon, which you could eat as is or dress up with condiments. It was delicious, but you know how bacon has a tendency to “stay with you”.

So Motor Man and I joked later in the day that we’d attended the “Burpin’ Bacon and Beach Music Festival”.
