Organizers of a Russian town's annual mosquito festival said this year's event will include a "most delicious girl" contest for women who don't mind bug bites.
Natalya Paramonova, an organizer of the three-day event starting July 17 in Berezniki, said the festival will feature a "most delicious girl" contest, with women in shorts and vests stand still for 20 minutes to allow the bloodsucking insects to feast.
"An expert panel of judges, including a doctor, will examine their bodies and the winner will be the one with the most bites," Paramonova told Interfax.
Organizers said the winner of 2013's "most delicious girl" contest received more than 100 bites during the 20-minute competition.
