Great Lakes Timber Show

Great Lakes Timber Show

This family-friendly show features chainsaw carving, axe throwing, horizontal wood chopping, two-man crosscut sawing, log rolling and loads of humor.

Bruce Belanger has never won a lumberjack competition but that does not prevent the founder of the Great Lakes Timber Show from introducing himself as the current and five-time trystate champion. He has tried in every state and hasn’t won a darn thing although he thinks it helps to have a title to get hired. He also met his wife at a fair.

Numerous celebrities have appeared at his shows, including two defensive ends for the New York Giants who attempted the logrolling event. The Great Lakes Timber Show has appreared at State Fairs, County Fairs, Theme Parks, Festivals and Sport Shows across the United States for over 20 years. Members of the show have appeared on ABC’s Wide World of Sports, ESPN, CBS This Morning, NBC Today and Good Morning America.
