Bacon Bash Texas will hold its eighth annual event on Oct. 19 in Cranfills Gap, Texas, a town of only 281 people.

According to organizers, 50 cook-off teams will head to central Texas to see who can cook up the best bacon dish. 

Bacon Bash Texas started in 2012 by Hamilton, Texas-based Pederson's Natural Farms. Along with the bacon fun, Bacon Bash Texas raises money for two causes: Niki Warms the Cold, a charity that donates coats and blankets to people in need in Texas and provides aid to children with type one diabetes.

Tickets for the event include all-you-can-eat bacon samples along with drinks and live entertainment. Spectators can also enter a bacon-eating contest.
