The Timberworks Lumberjack Show is the new addition for the 20th annual two-day Sartell SummerFest, which begins Friday, June 8.
Based in Hayward, Wis., the “Timberworks” show features a group of lumberjacks who wow crowds with a combination of lumberjack skills that combine athleticism, derring-do and lots of humor. The lumberjacks demonstrate a variety of crowd-pleasing skills, including logrolling, speed-climbing, an obstacle course, an axe throw, sawing and speed-carving.
The three shows, all free, will take place Saturday at the Sartell Middle School grounds. Show times are 11:30 a.m., 1 p.m. and 2 p.m.
