The second annual NOLA Stache Dash & Tailgate got underway at Central City BBQ in New Orleans Sunday November 17, 2019 where men and women and even children miraculously grew mustaches. The event included a 2-mile fun run and a best mustache competition followed by tailgating for the New Orleans Saints football game televised from Tampa Bay. The winner of the best moustache was Kevin Gardebled, with 5-year-old Alex Jackson coming in second. The Pussyfooters cheered on the finishers. Proceeds benefitted prostate cancer screenings for musicians through the New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic. Photos by Matthew Hinton
