The Doylestown Historical Society is hosting an ‘old-style’ mustache contest. They are looking for the best one in town: handlebar, waxed, or otherwise. The deadline for this extreme event is Memorial Day (May 28, 2012). The reason for that deadline is that contestants are invited to sport their ‘staches while marching in Doylestown’s famed Memorial Day Parade (the oldest Memorial Day Parade in the country, by the way).
According to their website, the contest judges will select a best out of all contestants, and the winner will get 4 tickets to an upcoming Phillies game! People who are interested in taking part should e-mail [email protected]. Additionally, you can check the Doylestown Historical Society’s Facebook Page for examples of moustaches from Bucks Countians of the past. The winner will be announced at their Community Picnic on Saturday, June 2 (held at the Central Bucks YMCA).
For those of you who proudly sport the mustache, now is your chance to be recognized. For those of you who have the ability to grow a wicked ‘stache, now is the time to get growing! (We have included a mustache guide below, for reference purposes.)
