Gallery: More Hairy Pics from Petaluma Whiskerino 2011

WREPRESENTIN’

This last Saturday was the 2011 annual Bill Soberanes Memorial Petaluma Whiskerino facial hair contest & celebration and I’m only now recovering. My wife and I help promote and organize it for the Petaluma Farmers’ Market and this year had almost 60 contestants and hundreds of spectators. As always, there was a lot of craziness to pull it all off. But it was another big, hairy success to say the least. A huge thanks to anyone who helped us and everyone who came out and showed their support (and their whiskers).

The talented folks at Petaluma‘s DNK Digital set up a pop-up photo booth to snap these fantastically-follicled photos. Click the link at the bottom for the full gallery (update: prints are now available for purchase, see below).
