LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Whiskermania two was held Saturday at the Tim Faulkner Gallery. 

It features, as organizers put it, "unmovable beards and unstoppable mustaches."

Participants come from all over the country to have their facial hair judged in 16 different categories.

Whiskermania participant Ryan Ellithorpe said it usually takes him about an hour and a half to style his beard. 

"This beard normally it's about 12 inches. I've been growing it for over two years . And what I tried to do was create a spider out of it. So this should be the four legs and this should be the body," Ellithorpe said.

Money raised at the event goes to the nonprofit group, Active Heroes, which helps active duty military, veterans and their families.
