Hackensack will again be the home of the National Chainsaw Carving Event on Sept. 27-29, 2013. The 3-day event features 10 chainsaw carvers from Minnesota, Iowa & Nebraska, who will turn simple logs into works of art. The crowd can enjoy the progress as the carvers utilize their artistic insight and creativity to make sculptures from the logs. The art is auctioned at 1 on Sunday.
The event includes the All-American Lumberjack Show, and there will be a special school show at noon on Friday, Sept. 28. Other shows will take place on Friday, three times on Saturday and once on Sunday. Interspersed between shows are a variety of kids and family games.
As part of the event, there are food vendors and numerous booths featuring the work of several Minnesota artisans.
Logs of white pine 16 to 20 inches in diameter are being sought. If you have some you are willing to donate, contact Duane at 218-675-6580.
The event concludes with an auction of the carved pieces, starting at 1 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 30.
