Owner description: Experience World Champion Lumberjacks in a fast paced action packed lumberjack competition, a Mackinaw City MUST SEE! Shows at Jack Pine Lumberjack Shows are approximately an hour long, delivered in a competition format, in which the audience is divided up into two rival logging camps, each camp cheering for their lumberjack. It demostrates the turn of the century skills of the lumberjack including chopping, sawing, axe throwing, cross-cut sawing, speed climbing and logrolling. In addition to the competition, there is also a chain saw carving demonstration. The show educates the audience in the rich history of Michigan's logging past. It is fast paced, up-beat and keeps the audience involved. A fun show for the entire family, children under the age of 5 are free!

Great audience involvement especially if traveling with kids. Excellent that after the show the kids can pick up a piece of wood & have it signed by the lumberjacks! The time frame of the competition/program was perfect---even if you're traveling with a 3 year old!

Show was very entertaining and reasonably priced. This was our second trip to see it and yet it all seemed fresh and new. A must see if in Mackinaw City.

Only a couple of miles from our campsite is this jewel of Mackinaw City. Dan and Ben, the two competing lumberjacks, put on an educational but entertaining show. We enjoyed the humor and banter between Dan, Ben, and the MC. We also learned a lot about the formation of the country at the turn of the century and the importance of the lumber industry.

Yes, some of the humor was corny ... but it was still funny. And, it was totally clean so that all ages would appreciate it.

This was priced right for a fun evening. We were told that they do different shows so this is something that we will return to next year.

We had a great time cheering on our lumberjack! Just watching what they could do was amazing. Plus they made so many jokes to keep the audience laughing. Show was just over an hour - but such a great time, well worth the money especially with kids.

It's a really close competition during this show! Exciting and fun despite the Host's cheesy jokes. Lots of audience participation makes it even better. Kids loved it! Check it out. Free souvenirs and autographs at the end of the show.
