The 17th annual Lumberjack Hertiage Festival kicks off today. The opening ceremony will be taking place at Riverside Park at 5:00pm with the parade getting underway at 6:00pm. The festival provides a social and economic impact to the surrounding areas due to the increased flow of traffic.

With amateur lumberjack competitions, local food vendors and a BMX workshop to list a few attractions, there’s something for everyone in the family.

 

Admission is $5. It gets you into the festival to walk around all weekend long.
