Can't make it for the Main Street Food Truck Festival ? Eat bacon

If you can't make it downtown this weekend for the 3rd Annual Main Street Food Truck Festival, consider this gathering that celebrates the pork belly - The Rock Town Bacon Throwdown at War Memorial Stadium.

The "throwdown" will include 10 local professional chefs serving up samples of their best bacon dishes in a cookoff contest.

Proceeds from the event benefit the UAMS Patient Support Fund, which helps patients with things like clothing, travel, hospital equipment and car seats.

The event is Saturday at 1 p.m. on the War Memorial West Side entrance.
