The two-day event features a variety of
woodsmen events, like log rolling, women's firewood split, team
railsplitting, tree falling, tug o' war, rail toss contest, hatchet
toss and other contests. The contests attract state and nationally
known competitors, many returning to defend their titles each year.
Don't miss the fire department water
fight, Civil War band and other free live entertainment, in addition
to craft demonstrations, flea market, food booths, an Indian village
and a petting zoo, all part of the event.
The festival concludes on Sunday
afternoon with the National Championship Railsplitting Contest.
So, get out
and enjoy festival food, shop for fall decorations and homemade
goodies, and root for your favorite railsplitters.
