There's a reason every season to pass through the White Mountains and land at the grandest of the grand hotels - The Balsams. This weekend the reason is the North Country Grand Lumberjack Challenge.
Lumberjack competitors from across New England and even Quebec, will be showing off their skills in crosscut, sawing, log rolling and more. What can visitors do? Plenty! Beyond cheering for your favorite lumberjack, visitors can take part in activities like a 5K run, helicopter rides, a pie eating contest and more. Proceeds benefit the Wounded Warrior Project, which aims to help our wounded Veterans receive care and services. Cost for adults, $5; children under 12 are free. Call 800-255-0600 for more information.
