This weekend we had the good fortune to attend the 66th Annual Lumberjack Fiesta. It was pure Americana like a Norman Rockwell painting. The Fiesta takes place at Hoo Hoo Park in McCloud, California. I posted a few iphone photos when we were at the event. Those pictures didn’t really tell the whole story. Let me show you around.
Great form at the axe throw.

The Lil Lumberjack competition. This boy lets one fly!
Nice throw young man!
Mt Shasta provides the perfect backdrop. The softball tournament went all weekend.
There was even a horseshoe tournament.
We were signing books for Red Tail Publishing.
This was the Red Tail Publishing gang on Saturday. Mary Livingston, The Backdoor Artist, Tim Livingston (me) and Ivy Smith, were there signing books. Phil all around good guy helps us out a bunch!
Mary visits with a guest who admires a cuddly turkey vulture toy.
Venders were there with food, art, clothes and all kinds of interesting stuff.
What picnic would be complete without a watermelon eating contest! The big boys had to sit on their hands.
- The aftermath!
Blitz and Teka came too. There were lots of dogs in attendance.
Blitz gets a “little” love.
The ladies axe throw. The timber sports events were for anyone who wanted to participate.
Spectators enjoy the men’s double buck competition.
What better souvenir then a chainsaw carved bear!
The men’s double buck competition. These guys are cutting like “a house afire!”
