We have 8 Pro carvers coming from all over the US and even Zimbabwe Africa competing and producing some of the most amazing sculptures you will ever see. Chainsaw Sculpture is a relatively new art form that has taken off all over the world, come see what all the buzz and chips are about. We will be competition carving at the North end of the field on Oct. 5th, 6th, 10th, 11th & 12th.We will be holding chainsaw carving demonstrations on the 7th 8th and 9th. We will be raffling chainsaws and sculptures daily to benefit the Albuquerque Area Firefighters Random Acts, we will also have a live auction on Sunday the 6th and Saturday the 12th at approximately 5pm. Many of the sculptures in the auction will have a "Buy it now" option, for those who wont be able to make the live auction. Our theme this year will be "Enchanted Sunrise." We will also have daily quick carves, (90 minute carves) that will have wildlife themes. Shipping and handling will be available. We sure hope to see you there!
