Campbell River Carvings

One of the things Campbell River is known for, aside from fishing, is its many carvings around town. Most of these have come from the Transformations on the Shore competition, which this year got underway yesterday (June 26).

 This event brings carvers from across North America to Campbell River, where they compete in a number of categories over a five day period. It draws a great many people to Frank James Park, along the water in Willow Point, to watch the carvers as they take a massive trunk and turn it into a work of art.

At the end of the event some carvings are sold, some are kept in private collections, and the majority are distributed around town. To date there are more than 300 carvings decorating the landscape of Campbell River.

If you have the opportunity, take the time to visit the carvers over the week-end and watch the amazing Transformations!

(Carvings shown are from the 2012 competition.)
It's a Coastal Lifestyle ... Pass It On!
