The Stache Pag is held to honor the tradition of men growing moustaches simply because they can. The contestants take the month of March to grow their facial hair into all sorts of sizes and shapes. One young fellow came all the way from Connecticut to strut his stuff.
The category descriptions for this years pageant were as follows:
The Magnum P.I. - The natural or common moustache… this moustache is a full, well-integrated, friend of your face… not too flamboyant, but certainly stating something in bold print.
The Thigh Tickler- Where the moustache makes magic. These staches leap from the face, a la Handlebar, Fu Manchu, Pancho Villa and other fantastic pleasing pleasures. Judges tend to favor three-dimensional aspects and creative styling.
The Uncle Rico- this category refers to moustaches belonging to men, for reasons unclear, not able to grow enough hair on their upper lip to enter either of the other two categories. No ringers: this category is for the guys who obviously let it grow for a while to look that way.
The five judges based their votes on the following:
