Looking for a good ol’ time for your Father’s Day weekend?  Take him back in time at the Maine Forest and Logging Museum. This Saturday the museum will be holding their 3rd Annual Blackman Stream Alewife Cross Country Run.If you want to runs through the woods the race starts at 8:30 and follows a path through the Penobscot Experimental Forest. You can walk or run of course and the first 50 people who register will get a free t-shirt. But the fun does not stop there at 10 AM the whole camp will come alive with activity.

  • The Axe Women Loggers of Maine will be showing their stuff–just how fast can they swing an axe?   The all female timber sports athletes are world champion choppers, sawyers and axe throwers.
  • The famous Lombard’s loghauler will be out and making the circuit through the area. What a great opportunity to see two of the machines that revolutionized logging in the Maine woods restored to working order and being driven once again.
  • Plus many of the antique sawmills will be producing boards and shingles
  • There will also be classic camp fare available for purchase such as  bean hole beans with a campfire biscuit.

The Maine Forest and Logging Museum, also known as Leonard’s Mills, is 1 ¼ miles down the Government Rd. off  Rte. 178 in Bradley.  Admission is  $10/adults, $5 kids 2+
