CINCINNATI (AP) - More than a dozen massive mustache statues throughout Cincinnati and northern Kentucky are staying on sidewalks for two more weeks.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports (https://cin.ci/1O6V3fQ) officials with the Cincinnati Reds say the “‘Staches on Parade” statues will remain throughout the city until about July 28. The statues were spread around the area to celebrate the 2015 Major League Baseball All-Star Game, which was held July 14 at Great American Ball Park.

Officials say each statue was funded by private donors and sponsors and will return to them at the end of July.

The pieces were inspired by the Reds mascot Mr. Redlegs, who had a handlebar mustache. Each statue is about 8 feet wide, 2 1/2 feet high and weighs about 850 pounds.
