Sideburns Contest To Honor Commodore Perry

Monday, August 05, 2013

Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry won a major victory over the British 200 years ago at the Battle of Lake Erie. On Wednesday the citizens of Erie, Pa., will honor him the best way they know how โ€” with a sideburns contest. Judges are looking for sideburns that resemble Commodore Perry's famous mutton chops.
