2 Girls Who Travel Hit Up the International Bacon Fest

So the International Bacon Fest (aka Bacon iFest) was this weekend and like the name suggests, all things pork were on the menu. The event, held in downtown Houston, had stuff for the entire family including a watermelon-eating contest for the kids and adult beverages for the grown folks!

Live bands performed on the stage while patrons visited booths featuring bacon and pork dishes from around the world.

And the best part about Bacon iFest – it benefits Texas Lions Camp, a residential camping facility for children with physical disabilities, type 1 diabetes and cancer. Bacon for a cause? We can dig it.

We absolutely cannot pass up a mural, so when we saw this one on the way to the festival, we had to snap a few pics!

I’m sure you know, but Houston’s climate is hot and humid about 10 months out of the year – seriously. So while some people are experiencing crisp, fall weather, we were melting. This booth made a killing!

Flashback to the 90s! We loved Mario and Luigi so imagine our excitement taking this pic!

And the best part – Mario and Luigi were passing out pork rinds! Don’t worry, these were the healthy kind … gluten-free and fried in sunflower oil 😉
