DES MOINES, Iowa — The Associated Press reports that organizers behind Des Moine’s annual bacon festival have booked their first reservation for a bacon-themed wedding.

The Iowa Bacon Board (yes, Iowa has a Bacon Board) says a couple has responded to organizers’ request for couples to wed at the seventh annual Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival.

The “Viva Las Bacon” weddings will take place hourly in the Chapel OHHHH Bacon, a private room in the Jacobson Building at the Iowa State Fairgrounds.

The bacon festival is scheduled to take place Feb. 1. Tickets will be on sale online on Thursday, beginning at 12:12 p.m., at precisely 13 seconds past the minute.

And you might be in time to book your own bacon wedding. The festival has three more wedding packages available.
