BANGOR - When you think of Maine, one thing may come to mind fairly quickly, lumberjacks, and at the Bangor State Fair Sunday you could see a couple of them.
The Paul Bunyan Lumberjack Show brought in quite the crowd earlier this afternoon to watch men and women participate in some friendly competition.
Sawing through logs, ax throwing and chopping a block of wood in half, were just a few of the tasks throughout the competition.
If you'd like the opportunity to see this in person or have the chance to yell 'timber', the show goes on everyday until Saturday, at 4 and 8 p.m. Friday will only have an 8 p.m. show.
