Annual celebration includes famous logging show on Saturday

Logger Country is getting ready for the biggest event of the year.

Amboy Territorial Days are set for July 12 through 14 at Amboy Territorial Park, three days of celebration.

Saturday will feature the parade and the famous logging show. On Sunday, one cannot miss lawnmower racing. Yes. Lawnmower racing. Don’t worry. The blades are removed for safety purposes.

According to the Territorial Days website, Amboy Territorial Prk was established more than 50 years ago to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the first Amboy post office, which was established in 1886.

The park hosts Territorial Days, which is run by an all-volunteer, non-profit organization. 

This year’s theme for the parade: 

“We’re not out of the woods yet. We’re Stihl here!” Loggers will understand that pun.

Territorial Days will open at 3 p.m. Friday. There is a car show at the park starting at 5 p.m. The queen coronation will take place at 6 p.m.

There is a full schedule of events all day Saturday. Among the highlights is the parade, which starts at 11 a.m. At noon, it is the always popular logging show. From there, music and other entertaining activities will go through the night until 11 p.m.
