'Big Bite Bacon Fest' at the SD Fair

Posted: Updated:

DEL MAR (CBS 8) - Love of bacon was on full display in Del Mar. Sunday was the "Big Bite Bacon Fest" at the San Diego County Fair.

Thousands of people feasted on all things bacon, from cakes to donuts to jerky.

And for some, bacon isn't just a food, it's a way of life.

"Bacon is everything. Bacon is like the food of the Gods. Bacon is like salt and smoke in one place. Bacon is everything that is good."

A Vista couple took their love of bacon one step further, combining it with their love of one another. They won a contest to get married during the bacon festival.
