The 45th Annual Yukon Sourdough Rendezvous in Whitehorse will begin Wednesday (Feb. 24) and one of the biggest events is the Womens Hairy Leg Contest.
In the contest, the hairy-limbed ladies compete in three different categories that consist of the densest hair, the longest hair and the most horrific hair.
The winner in each category is determined by a barber in the small town and receives a gold plated razor.
Festival spokesman Harold Sher expects more than 15 girls to compete and admits its one of the more popular spectator events at the festival, which also includes the Beard Growing Contest and the Flour Packing Contest.
More than 20,000 people are expected to flock to the three-day festival which celebrates the loads of people who traveled through the area during the Gold Rush.
