World Beard and Moustache Championships in Anchorage!!

Last weekend Anchorage was blessed, nay humbled, to host the 11th WBMC.

With many fine beards and moustaches residing here in our very own state, it was almost no surprise that the winner of the competition, brandishing a full beard in the freestyle category, was none other than an Alaskan himself. Please enjoy a selection of images from the Friday afternoon parade and feel free to comment on your own personal favorites. My favorite is the guy featured in photo #10 and 16.

Despite your assumptions, this event is non-discriminatory.
