It's that time of year again—when the most fantastic facial hair in all the land competes for the grand prize—The Coney Island Fez. The 8th Annual Coney Island Beard and Mustache Competition takes place tomorrow at 8pm. What better way to celebrate Labor Day, right? Participants can sign up for $20 in advance, or at the door starting at 6pm, but be prepared to take on puffs, curls, twists, dreads and even decorations. Categories include ‘The Brass Ring’ (Best in Show), ‘Coney Island Curl’ (Best Moustache Styled), ‘Hokum and Hoodwinked’ (Best Fake Beard or Moustache), ‘Carny Trash’ (Worst in Show) and several more.

The co-hosts for the night are Don Jamieson of VH1's That Metal Show and Adam RealMan, and there will be sideshow acts by Miss Coney Island 2015, Betty Bloomerz, Serpentina as well as comedy magic from 'Uncle' Jim Daly. The doors at 1208 Surf Ave in Brooklyn open at 6pm, so grab tickets for $20 in advance or at the door, and get psyched with these crazy photos of beards and mustaches from 2013's competition
