Our big finish will be the Paul Bunyan special with Timber Tina at the Great Maine Lumberjack Show. Log Rolling, Axe Throwing and Cross Cut Sawing!

Learn how to use a cross-cut saw with a 2-person competition-style saw - see the chips fly!  Then try the axe throw using a double-headed or double-bladed axe and throw it at a target 20 feet away  just like the pros (there will also be small axes and a downsized target for the younger Jacks & Jills).  Finally we end up in the water in the log rolling event! Everyone will try their skill at balancing on top of a Western Red Cedar log… always the ‘crowd favorite’ and everyone LOVES TO ROLL!!!
