No kidding. 

Lucy Belle LeMay of the Hot Damn Trailer Park in the fictitious town of Beaver Pond, Vermont, was at the Provincetown Carnival last week, where she competed for the title of Biggest Hair. She won in 2002, 2003, and 2004, but came back empty-handed the past two years.

This year, her luck changed.

From the official House of LeMay press release:

Lucy Belle was determined to go back to P'town 'one more time' to prove she could still be considered one of the most distinguished drag queens in Provincetown history. Last Wednesday night, at the annual bingo game, her dream came true. She was not only named Biggest Hair, but was sincerely considered to be named Best Drag Queen as well. Lucy Belle also made an appearance at the annual Friday Drag Brunch where she performed 'Red Neck Drag Queen.' 

The email, from "Amber LeMay," aka Bob Bolyard, adds, "Lucy Belle would liketo thank Ron and Don at the O'm Salon in Burlington for assisting withher hair presentation."

Whoever helped her definitely deserves some credit.

You can read Lucy Belle's P-town diary at the House of LeMay blog. And there's more info about the "ladies" LeMay in this story I wrote last year.
