Your Morning Juice, Nov. 15: OHHH! Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival returns!

It's time again to plan for the year's greasiest weekend. Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival unveiled plans this week to return Feb. 16, 2019 to the Iowa Events Center. Juice has all the details on next year's theme, music and planned activates for the crispy winter party.

Now, for more entertainment news…

In case you missed it 

Hinterland plans to expand in 2019 to three days — Aug. 2-4 at Avenue of the Saints Amphitheater in St. Charles. Organizers say the growth comes in-part because they want to "bring back" an artist. Who could it be? We made a list of every act that's played Hinterland. Happy guessing! 

Speaking of festivals

Toby Keith, Dierks Bentley, Jake Owen, Lauren Alaina and more plan to appear in Iowa for next year's Tree Town Music Festival. Taking place roughly two hours north of Des Moines, in Forest City, the event returns May 23-26. Get more details now via Juice
