This is so much fun and low-key for a family. A must do when you come to Mackinac city. If you have kids they will love this show. The lumberjacks were incredible and so strong. Will make you want to learn how to log roll!

Kyle and Derrick were our Lumberjacks for the night. They gave us a great show but it was even better talking to them after the show and hearing how much they love what they do.
