One of my favorite things about owning a Lancaster County Bed and Breakfast
is the shear variety of unique and fun events we have going on, pretty much ALL the time! Case in point
: Lancaster County is playing host to the The Second Annual $5000 Beard Team USA National Beard and Moustache Championships on October 8, 2011
at the Clipper Magazine Stadium
, in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, just 12 miles from the Historic Smithton Inn!!!
Competition will take place in five categories, including moustache, partial beard, full beard groomed, full beard natural, and freestyle. A total of $5000 ($1000 per category) in cash will be awarded to the winners, with the first place winners taking home $600 each, second best $300, and third place $100.
Lancaster is well known for its Amish community that has been growing beards for America in the surrounding area for nearly 300 years. Participants in the Nationals will have a unique chance to experience Amish culture as part of the Nationals Weekend.
The entry fee for contestants will be $40. Admission for spectators will be $10.
