Carving in the Ozarks scheduled for April 26-27
The Eureka Springs Volunteer Fire Department will host Carving in the Ozarks on Friday, April 26, and Saturday, April 27, at 4028 E. Van Buren in Eureka Springs.
This year, more than 20 carvers will travel across the country to participate in this competition event. This is a free event to the public where professional carvers can be observed creating masterpieces of their choosing carved from logs using chainsaws and various power tools in a competition against each other. Carvers will be creating all day on both days of the event from approximately 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
This will be the 15th year for the event, which is a fundraiser for the volunteer fire department. On Saturday afternoon at 4 p.m., a live auction will be held to auction off the carvings created in the competition over the two-day period. The proceeds from the auction are used to purchase equipment for the firefighters. More than 40 creations of all types will be available in the auction, giving everyone something of interest to bid on.
The department wishes to invite everyone to come and enjoy the festivities during both days and to participate in the live auction. More information is available by calling the fire department or by visiting the department's website at www.eurekaspringsfire.org.
