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.
