CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Virginia City has emerged as Nevada's "most bearded community" following a weekend contest.

The Nevada Appeal reports Virginia City won by bringing 57 whiskered faces to the competition held Saturday after the annual Nevada Day Parade in Carson City, the state's capital.

The home team of Carson City had 46 bearded faces at the event.

Nevada Supreme Court Justices Mark Gibbons and Nancy Saitta served as judges of the hairy competition, along with Miss Nevada Outstanding Teen Ellie Smith of Las Vegas.

They chose winners in the community contest as well as eight other categories, including blackest beard and best salt-and-pepper beard.
