Show off your vintage flavour this BaconFest

BACONFEST'S Pin-up Pageant is coming back after a successful first year, and the organisers are excited to get people on board.

Entertainment coordinator Kristy Board said this year's pageant would once again embrace the themes of both vintage pin-up and the bacon industry.

"As well as the theme, we're celebrating the woman you are and the skin you're in. It's 100 per cent about confidence and courage, while showing off the vintage flavour," she said.

While vintage pin-up traditionally focusses on the 40s and 50s fashion era, they're welcoming vintage-inspired outfits from the 30s to the 70s.

According to host Bettie Butcher, the pageant will be running very similar to last year's, entwining both the theme of vintage and the theme of bacon into one grand competition.

"We'll take a number of entrants who will go through an application process who will have to send a photo and a bio on them for the committee to shortlist," she said.

"Then those lucky ladies will get to come and take the stage, and the women are judged on their confidence, overall look and the inclusion of the theme of BaconFest."

Ms Butcher was impressed by the creative ideas included in last year's pageant.

"There were BaconFest logos and someone even wore a bacon rasher shawl, and those are the little things we love to see," she said.

Ms Board said they will soon be calling out for pageant participants, which they'll soon sort into finalists, so if you want to get involved, don't hesitate.
