Fun in the sun
TUPPER LAKE — For the past three years, rain played a big, and an unwelcome role in the annual Tupper Lake Woodsmen’s Days. But last weekend, only wonderful weather greeted the event, and as a result, larger crowds turned out for an enjoyable weekend of fun in the sun.
The event kicked off Friday evening with a dinner, and then moved into Saturday, when most of the events and competitions took place. Saturday featured a parade in the morning, wood carvers on display, heavy equipment contests and of course, the always popular night games that included tug-of-wars and both the children and adult greased pole climbs.
The Woodsmen’s Day wrapped up Sunday with more competitions and the auction of the dozens of woodcarvings created by numerous chainsaw artists.
