EVERY DAY at the FAIR you will SEE:
Masters of the Chainsaw
Masters of the Chainsaw is a limited group of the nation's top professional chainsaw sculptors, dedicated to promoting and preserving the integrity of the art form and it's performance. We have had Marty Long at our fair for several years now and he never fails to draw a crowd. During a forty five-minute show, from behind protective netting, onlookers will observe an original and captivating high-energy performance. With chain saw roaring and chips flying, Marty's precision and skill quickly transforms a three-foot tall log into a true work of art. Nearly every show will result with a chainsaw carving being-produced from start to finish, with as many as four chainsaw carvings per day. Two days during the fair we auction off the carvings at a live auction.
