Athletes from across the northwest tested their strength - the old fashioned way - at Libby Logger Days. Since 1960, the city has put on a celebration that draws upon the city's rich logging history.
Originally created for the men who "worked hard and played harder," the festival continues to feature a logging competition for both men and women. Other festivities include a carnival, parade, and lawnmower races.
Residents said they've been coming to Logger Days for years, and many consider it the highlight of their summer.
"Chopping and sawing events - they all have historical value because this is how they used to log and used to process lumber," said Kyle O'Brien. "Now of course, we have chainsaws and everything else - but this is the way they used to do it so it's interesting. To come and watch these guys do it the way that my great-grandfather did back in the day."
Libby Logger Days continue on Sunday at 11am.
