Log Show has parade, vendors, carnival and two days of competition

The annual Buckley Log Show annually brings two-plus days of fun, packed with a parade, vendors, a carnival and competition.

The show, now in its 46th year, aims to celebrate Buckley’s past while offering a nod to the present. Above all, the goal of the organizing committee is to provide a good time for everyone.

This year, things get rolling at 10 a.m. this Saturday, June 29, with the traditional parade that closes off downtown Buckley. Entries will roll along Main Street, stopping just short of the highway.

The parade is always dominated by local entries, featuring 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.
