A Helldorado Days tradition since inception, the Whiskerino Contest will be held at Pullman Grille inside Main Street Station on Friday, May 16 at 6 p.m. Whether entrants sport a full beard, mutton chops, goatee or handlebar moustache, there is a fitting category for contestants to enter to showcase their facial locks.
Categories for the Whiskerino Contest this year include: longest beard, best groomed beard, most unique beard, longest moustache, best moustache, best goatee, best overall and audience favorite.
Whiskerino contestants are encouraged to dress up in western, pioneer, cowboy or 1880’s period attire. For contest rules, criteria and registration, visit www.elkshelldorado.com/events/whiskerino-contest.
