Thursday, July 9, 2015 — After 27 years of sponsorship, the Westwood Chamber of Commerce board of directors has learned what entertainment patrons of the Paul Bunyan Mountain and Blues Festival want when they walk through the gates of Westwood Park each July. Therefore all the favorite elements comprise the 2015 event scheduled for Saturday, July 11.
•A venue for the blues bands located at the southwest end of Westwood Park that has a stage, shaded picnic tables and a lawn area for portable chairs or picnic blankets. The Amy Celeste Band is scheduled to play from noon to 2 p.m., and J.C. Smith Band from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m.
•A logging show in which competitors highlight skills used within the industry begins at noon. This year the show is dedicated to the memory of an industry giant, Ole Salem. There will be a special axe-throwing competition and single man handsaw event in Salem’s honor because they were his two favorite events.
