December isn’t all that far off now, and we are getting ever closer to Florida’s Festival of Facial Hair in Merritt Island, Florida. This event will run from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. or later if the comp runs longer. There will be things for the kids, vendors of various areas of interest, and of course a Beard Competition. There are app. 16 categories including a kids category and two categories for the ladies! We’re definitely hoping to see all of our friends from other points in the state!
This competition is being presented by MoustacheTamer.com and BeardedGents.com, and there will even be a world record attempt taking place too. Everyone is invited to this festival of facial foliage, and the weather should be wonderful! The average daily temp on Merritt Island for Dec 5th, is 72 degrees. Wish it were 72 here now. lol We’re expecting several hundred folks to this event and competition, and there’s even a Pre-Party for competitors on Dec 4th, @ FishLips on Port Canaveral!
We have 3 of the 5 judges lined up; Michael Albanese of Atlanta’s Battle of the Beards, Johnnie Strickland of the Jacksonville Order of Beardsmen, and Mikey Steel of B.O.M.B. Brotherhood of Mustaches and Beards in Miami, FL. I’m the emcee of the show and look forward to seeing friends and havin a great day!
Whether you’re planning on entering the competition, signing on as a sponsor, or as a vendor, we are looking forward to seeing you on the island! More information is available at http://floridasfestivaloffacialhair.com/ .
Thank you for your time!
