Carving in the Ozarks set for Friday, Saturday

Wednesday, April 19, 2017

The Eureka Springs Volunteer Fire Department will host the annual Carving In The Ozarks event on Friday and Saturday April 21-22.

The event will be held at 4028 E. Van Buren St in Eureka Springs, on Highway 62 on the east side of town just before Passion Play Road. This year 24 carvers will travel from areas as far as Colorado and Georgia to participate in the competition. This is a free event to the public where professional carvers can be observed creating masterpieces of their choosing

carved from logs using chain saws and various power tools in a competition against each other. Carvers will be creating all day on both days of the event.

This will be the 13th year for the event, which is a fundraiser for the volunteer fire department.

The competition will run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. At 4 p.m. Saturday, a live auction will be conducted to

auction off the carvings created in the competition. The

proceeds from this auction are used to purchase equipment for volunteer firefighters.

More than 40 creations of all types will be available in the auction, giving everyone something of interest to bid on.

More information is available by calling the fire department or

by visiting the department web site at www.eurekaspringsfire.org.
