We went and had an enjoyable time seeing the different skills of the lumberman. The best were the pole climb and the log roll. They did a great job of getting the audience involved.

13 year old boy, 4 year old boy and 1 adult were all entertained. Lumberjack skills were so impressive and even a little humor thrown in. Staff was all extremely friendly. Lumberjacks stayed for meet and greet. My boys were stoked!
