Hairy Chest, Legs and Beard Contest

in Fairbanks, AK, USA

Hairy Chest, Legs and Beard Contest

These annual July events are part of Fairbanks' Golden Days. The weekend celebrates Fairbanks' rich gold-mining history and the late Felix Pedro, who was the first person to strike gold in Fairbanks. Since most miners were of the scraggly, unkempt persuasion, there's a Hairy Chest, Hairy Legs, Best Beard and Best Mustache contest. There's also a rubber duck race on the Chena River. $20,000 worth of prize money is given away throughout the weekend. Warning! You better watch your P's & Q's, because anyone can pay the local law to arrest your ass and toss you in the slammer.
