Junior Show attracts 142 competitors, here are the winners

Make sure you don’t miss the big event next weekend.

The annual Buckley Log Show celebrates the community’s past, offers a respectful nod to the present and simply provides a good time for locals and visitors alike.

The show annually brings two-plus days of fun, packed with a parade, vendors, a carnival and competition.

This is the 45th year for the Log Show, governed by a committee of volunteers with the help of assorted community groups.

Things get rolling at 10 a.m. this Saturday, June 23, with the traditional parade that closes off downtown Buckley. Entries will roll along Main Street, stopping just short of the highway.

The parade is heavy on local entries and, in keeping with the theme for the weekend, features plenty of big, loud trucks. Judges traditionally determine awards for the best load of logs, best kids entry, best float, best lowboy, best miscellaneous truck and best overall entry.

Following the parade, many head to River Avenue to check out the vendors who line both sides of the street.

The annual carnival will be at the traditional site between state Route 410 and River Avenue.

The highlight of the weekend is the Log Show itself, which features serious competition in traditional events. The action gets under way at Saturday afternoon and concludes Sunday at the Log Show grounds. There is no fee for spectators.
