Please don’t hate me, but I’m giving you a “mustache” with a question. It’s not the question that I’m apologizing for, it’s that I couldn’t help making that ridiculous play on words. Trust me, I tried to find another way to put it, but my mind just refused. I hope you understand. Anyway, the question is, do you think you have the gopher, soup strainer, or snot mop in the Tri-State? Your chance to put your fancy follicles to the test is happening this weekend.
2022 Celestine Streetfest Presents Best Mustache Competition
If you’re genetically blessed with the ability to grow an impressive amount of facial hair between your nose and upper lip (I know a 45-year-old who can’t…me), take a trip to Celestine, Indiana this Saturday ( June 25) might be worth it. Part of this year’s annual Celestine Streetfest will feature a mustache contest with cash prizes awarded to the most handsome, the most unique and the ugliest. Unfortunately, they don’t have a “prepubescent” or “most pathetic” category, so it seems I’m out.
The contest will be followed by live music from 8:00 to 11:00 pm by the self-proclaimed “World’s Most Powerful Country Music Party Band of 1990,” Mustache the Band from Oxford, Mississippi, who will keep the party going by covering several of your favorite ’90s country artists like Garth Brooks, Tim McGraw, Alan Jackson, Shania Twain, Brooks & Dunn, Billy Ray Cyrus and more.
Here’s a little sneak peek at the type of party they’ll be bringing to the event. Ironically, I see at least two guys in the band without mustaches ♂️. However, one appears to be rocking a real or fake mullet, so it makes up for it.
Other events and activities
