It is well worth walking around at least part of the chainsaw sculpture trail. Even though it was raining, we were glad we took the time to see them. They really are works of art in their own right.

This exhibit of talent from world wide carvers is amazing. So exciting to watch what they create and the “quick carve “ competition gives people a chance to purchase some of their art.
