With Whirring Chainsaws And Giant Axes, Lumberjacks Battle In Minsk (Photos)

Typically, Dreamland Park is a place of waterpark activities, wild dances and food festivals. Instead, on Saturday, tall, bearded, thick-necked men hacked at pine logs with axes and chainsaws.

Seven craftsmen competed in tree chopping and three sawing disciplines, turning pieces of wood into art. The theme of the competition was Belarusian mythology.

Spectators apparently admired the powerful blows of the axes and enjoyed the aroma of freshly shredded sawdust. Scroll down to see how it was with your own eyes!
