"Mustache Mugshots" big hit at the State Fair


FAIRLEA -- It wasn't all politics and no play Thursday at the State Fair of West Virginia.

A "Stache Some Cash" photo booth was a big hit with fairgoers.

People enjoyed getting their mustache mugshots taken, while learning about the importance of saving for college.

West Virginia State Treasurer John Perdue came up with the idea as a way to promote Smart529, West Virginia's college savings program.

The Smart529 program was started more than 11 years ago, and boasts more than $2 billion in financial assets.

You can visit the "Stache Some Cash for College" booth inside the West Virginia University building on the fairgrounds.
