A student poses with his trophy for winning the longest beard at the annual Hobo Parade beard growing contest. The Hobo Parade was an annual event where people dressed up on costumes and attire resembling that of hobos. However, on campus, this expanded to different outfits and disguises meant to satirize elements of the Champaign Urbana community. This image is a still from the Bernard Strauch collection of Hobo Parade Imagery.
