Lumberjack Competition

Last update: April 2, 2014

This event was a huge crowd pleaser last year so come and watch the axes fly as these men and women try to stick an ax into a log end with a long controlled toss, or watch some fancy footwork from an old favorite, Log Rolling! This was how it used to be done in Valley County. A guaranteed highlight of the weekend, make sure you do not miss even one minute of this event.

Giving a nod to our past, our lumberjack competition will be fast and furious. Last year was the first time in over 20 years that a lumberjack competition came to Cascade. Under the direction of great friends of the park and long-time Cascadeans Tom & Wade Olson, we will be sure to bring down the house with lots of entertainment.
