Downtown Albany was abuzz Saturday with the sound of chainsaws. The All American Lumberjack show was in town. The logging skills were a plenty and the entertainment drew a crowd.
As crowds cheer for their team to win the Lumberjack challenge, vendors hope these same spectators will visit them.
"Business is steady, but I think it will pick up later this evening," said Marshari Thomas, with Cafe 230.
The event includes a live band, vendors, a classic car show, even a mechanical bull ride. Nate Greenburg and his opponent put on a show all day including ax-throwing, chainsaw carving and boom running through a pool.
"I would say that's my favorite event especially on a day like today," said Greenburg.
With temperatures in the mid 90s, kids still enjoyed the show and the lumberjacks made sure to include them. Matt Yates won this hand carved chair.
They also met with the kids and signed autographs after the first performance.
"The kids are really excited," said Greenburg. "We make a lot of noise, get wet, and the kids always appreciate that."
The show is based in Stillwater Minnesota. Greenburg loves traveling all over the nation creating some excitement and an economic boos for people right here in Albany Georgia.
The kids even had a chance to demonstrate their own skills with the logs earlier this evening. Movies in the park will start Riverfront Park at 7:30 p.m.
