The Grounds of Alexandria's celebrity pig Kevin Bacon has had quite a time at the property, including a viral pig-napping and surviving a snake bite in 2013. Now, Kev is moving on to a much-deserved retirement and The Grounds wants you to join in on the farewell festivities.

In honour of the big guy, The Grounds presents 7 Weeks of Kevin: seven weeks of celebrations that everyone can participate in. While the merriment has already kicked off with a laneway installation dedicated to the pig of the moment, you can also look forward to eating Kevin's Pig-Out Cake from The Grounds' Cafe from Monday, July 9, plus five other weeks of Kev-worthy entertainment.

At the end of the shenanigans, it'll be time to say goodbye to our favourite pig after his five-year residency — but don't be too tearful. Kev will unite with family at The Riverside Eco Farm Retreat, and The Grounds will welcome the latest addition to the property: a "young prince in the waiting".
