November is the month to ditch the razor and let your facial hair grow freely, and with all the Lake Area beards growing to their full potential this Movember, we are on a mission to find the best beard around.

Do you think your facial hair has what it takes to be crowned the best beard?

From November 14th at midnight to November 20th at 11:59pm, we will be accepting entries for our Best Beard Contest. Just email a picture of your beard to with your name and phone number attached.

On November 21st, the best beards in the running will be posted for online voting, then it will be up to you, your friends, family and all of Southwest Louisiana to vote for the best beard in the Lake Area.

Online voting will be open until November 27th at 11:59pm, and the beard with the most votes will be announced on November 30th.

The fuzzy face that is crowned the Best Beard will win:

  • One night stay at the Moody Gardens Hotel
  • 18 holes of golf at Moody Gardens
  • Family 4-pack of passes to the Moody Gardens Aquarium Pyramid, Rain Forest Pyramid, 3D/4D Theater, Colonel Paddlewheel Boat, Spongebob Subpants Adventure, Festival of Lights, Ice Land
  • $100 spending cash

So, whether your beard is Duck Dynasty status or carefully coiffed, it's time to show Lake Charles what you've got!
