There's a "hole" lot of fun in store at Mattoon's 27th annual Bagelfest, as this town in the Midwestern farmbelt celebrates its self-declared status as "Bagel Capital of the World," thanks to the Lender's bagel factory situated there. This year's "Lights, Camera, Bagelfest" theme will shine a spotlight on the boiled and baked bread, with events including the largest free bagel breakfast in the world, at which 10,000 bagels are consumed. Further dough-themed delights include a bagel bow-wow contest, featuring canines competing for the best costume trophy, and a parade featuring bagel-bedecked entries. General admission is free of charge.
