Beard Team USA Contest to Raise Funds for Animal Welfare Center

Beard Team USA in association with Krew de Croix present the first Beard & Mustache contest. John Macy (aka Captain Big Beard) and Dennis Dickerson have founded a St. Croix chapter of Beard Team USA. The first Beard contest will take place on Saturday, Jan. 24, on the Christiansted boardwalk by the web cam.
Check-in and competition instructions will begin at 2 p.m. and a "strutters' parade" will start at 3 p.m. when entrants will walk around the parade route. At 4 p.m., the judging will begin. The contest is open to all ages and sexes, with categories in beards and mustaches, fake and real. Costumes are encouraged but not required for competition. Prizes will be presented in several different categories.
Entry fees are $10 in advance and $20 on site, with all net proceeds going to the St. Croix Animal Welfare Center. Applications and registration forms can be picked up at Big Beard's Centipede store on Queen Cross Street by the Christiansted boardwalk.
Dig out those wigs, beards and mustaches, along with a costume to have a great time and a lot of laughs at this unique event.
