Hackensack Chainsaw Event
The annual Hackensack Chainsaw Event kicked off earlier this morning. The event is known for inviting artists from around the U.S. to show just how talented they are at sculpting a piece of wood with a chainsaw.
In it’s eleventh year, people from across the U.S. continue to travel to Hacksack for their Chainsaw Carving Event. The three day weekend brings numerous carvers to display their skills they have gained over many years. With an expected over 3,000 visitors to attend the event, the carvers have nothing but good things to say hospitality of this small town. And the carvers explained that the process begins with a simple log, like the ones you see behind me, turning their vision into an art. And they will continue to carve for hours each day, until their final product is finished. But at the end of the three days, they will be able to auction off their pieces of work.
The event is open 9 A.M.-5 P.M. both Saturday and Sunday of this weekend, with the Chainsaw Carving Auction set to begin at noon on Sunday.
