Save the Date for the Lumberjack Championships!
Gear up for thundering chain saws and swift axes as the STIHL Virginia Beach Lumberjack Championships arrive at Mount Trashmore Park on Saturday, September 19th
from 12:00 - 4:00 pm! Free public admission and on-site parking available for this exciting and educational event.
With a number of buzz-worthy challenges throughout the day - including underhand chop, standing block chop, Jack & Jill sawing, hot saw, single buck and the U.S. Championships for Axe Throwing - modern day lumberjacks and lumberjills will chop, smash and saw their way through a truckload of logs in no time flat. Using super-modified chain saws, some of which are built from motorcycle engines, they can make three cuts through those logs in under 10 seconds ... and that includes starting the saw!
