White River Chainsaw Carving Championships
This month Pacific will be hosting the White River Chainsaw Carving Championships in conjunction with Pacific Days on July 10th, 11th & 12th . This unique event has attracted some of the countries top chainsaw artists to compete in both theme and speed com- petitions. And yes, there will be more than just carved bears.
The theme for the event will be “100 Years of Life” in keeping with our centennial celebrations. Interpretations of this theme can range from native animals to people and artifacts from our city’s history.
Some chainsaw carvings have sold for thousands of dollars and chainsaw events have grown from small backyard type gatherings to large weeklong events attracting thousands of people. Fans travel hundreds of miles to at- tend an event and contribute thousands of dollars to local economies.
This year’s event has already attracted some of the top artists in the Northwest. Three-time Echo Cup Champion, Bob King who just won the Danish International Carving Competition, will be competing. Bob cur- rently holds more titles than any other carver in the world. During the competition, pieces will be auctioned off to defray costs associated with the event.
