KEVIN BACON’S RETIRING!

It’s been a roller coaster and wonderful ride with Kev, who’s been a star of The Grounds for over 5 years now and we’d like to honour the big guy with 7 Weeks of Kevin – a celebration of all he’s given to The Grounds and his retirement to greener pastures.

From being pig-napped in 2013 to gracing us with his daily walks and Sydney Park mud-rolling since… well since we could trust him to not run away, it’s been a real treat having him with us.

Let’s back-track. That’s right, pig-napped! What a drama. Kev’s abduction went national AND went viral, many thinking it was such a ridiculous occurrence that we’d staged the whole fiasco. We placed a reward for his return, and two weeks later the big guy found himself at a Victorian veterinary clinic, sick-as-a-hog after being bitten by a snake and almost leaving us for good. But, with the classic Kevin Bacon resolve, he knew he had more to give and returned to The Grounds in a blaze of glory.

At the end of the 7 week celebration, Kev will take up a new residence with the friendly folks at The Riverside Eco Farm Retreat (where he’s got a big family of kids awaiting his arrival) and we’ll welcome the newest addition to The Grounds family, a young prince in the waiting, ready to take on the Kevin Bacon throne and join his new home.
Here’s what’s on:
We’re counting down the 7 week festival with something new each week at The Grounds of Alexandria, each new offering will be available until we celebrate Kev’s last weekend (Sunday 19th August).

  • Week 7 – launched Thursday 5th July
    • Kevin Bacon’s Laneway Installation 
  • Week 6, coming soon – Monday 9th July
    • Kev’s Pig-Out Cake, available from The Grounds Cafe
  • Week 5,
    • Stay tuned….
