Chainsaw fun in Campbell River

As a nod to Campbell River's logging heritage, every summer loggers congregate in Nunns Creek Park to hurl axes, roll logs and climb spars to see who's the strongest, fastest and nimblest of them all

As a nod to Campbell River’s logging heritage, every summer loggers congregate in Nunns Creek Park to hurl axes, roll logs and climb spars to see who’s the strongest, fastest and nimblest of them all. (Click here for HelloBC’s guide to Campbell River.)

This year it’s on from August 6-8 and will feature several world championship and Canadian championship events. There will also be daily and evening entertainment on stage. For kids, $5 lets them play all day in the Bounce-A-Rama, climbing wall and train ride, as well as enjoy face-painting and a puppet show put on by the museum.

In conjunction, the Summer Salmon Sizzler runs parallel to logger sports, featuring a salmon-cooking competition for professional and amateur entrants. Throughout the event there will be guest speakers, cultural cooking demonstrations, native dancing and trade show booths for businesses and non-profit organizations.

On opening night (Friday, August 6) there will be an oyster-tasting and beer-sampling reception. Tickets will be available at the Visitor Information Centre.
