In the early days of festival different ways to get the communities involved on a personal level were being thought up by way of friendly competitions, one such competition was the Beard & Mustache Contest. In this contest you can compete against your friends, neighbors & and even family members. This contest has several different categories such as Longest Beard, Longest Mustache, Greyest, Darkest, Lightest and Most Unusual. Overall it’s a contest that’s as much fun to participate in as it is to watch. Prizes have included trophies, t-shirts, gift cards, hats, combs and hair care products from a local salon. This contest takes place Saturday afternoon during the Festival in the Entertainment Tent.
