It will be all things bacon in Vernon this weekend. A four course cooking contest in which the appetizers, side dishes, main course and even the dessert, must be made with bacon. And not just any bacon, but Wright Brand bacon.

This year the Bacon Fest was added to the Red River Barbecue Battle which begins Friday with a steak and salsa contest.

Community Leaders say Bacon Fest celebrates the impact Wright Brand has had in Vernon.

Judging begins shortly after 1 Saturday and the public can vote for people's choice by purchasing votes at 4 for a dollar.

The barbecue battle Saturday will consist of brisket, ribs, chicken and beans.
