Paul Bunyan Days

The first weekend of September brings Paul Bunyan Days in Fort Bragg, California.  Unfortunately, the annual festivities have been cancelled this year because of COVID.  But I have good news.  I captured much of the 2015 PBD events - so you can still enjoy the fun.  

Several competitions are held during the celebration, including the axe throw, horizontal hand chopping, & pole climb.  Local men & women participate in the contests hoping to win a couple hundred chips.  The competitions are even opened up to a few select out of towners.

A variety of other activities take place during the weekend.  Mendocino young ladies enter the Belle Ball, with the top princess being crowned at the culmination of the events during Sunday's logger's competition.  The firemen have a huge water fight.  Of course, the festivities would not be complete without a classic car show.  Just don't get caught without a beard or you may be arrested by the Kangaroo Kort.  

Paul Bunyan Days also includes two parades- one is just for the kids.  Here are a few of the highlights of the 2015 parade.  Learn more about the history of this fun tradition at PBD Facebook page.

I hope you enjoyed the virtual Paul Bunyan Days.  Leave your comments below- and be sure to subscribe so you don't miss any fun stuph.  😊
