Iowa State University will soon begin selling tickets for its first exposition celebrating all things bacon.

Tickets go on sale Friday for the school's first-ever Bacon Expo, which is scheduled for Oct. 19 in the Scheman Building Courtyard at the Iowa State Center. Officials say 1,200 tickets will be sold at $8 each.
