Bacon bustier, baklava highlight Alaskan Baconfest

JUNEAU, AK (WWBT) -

When it comes to bacon, it's hard to beat fans at the Juneau Baconfest.

Amy George sported a bustier made from bacon and told newsminer.com it was "pretty comfortable."

Around 400 people showed up to the second annual event, according to the report. The event raised money for the local Rotary club and old out days in advance.
