Labor Day brings Paul Bunyon Days to the Mendocino Coast

Labor Day weekend is always an exciting time on the Mendocino coast, and this year marks our 75th anniversary! The fun starts Friday, August 29 and continues through Labor Day, Monday September 1.

For rock enthusiasts and budding geologists there is a gem, mineral, and fossil show--speaking of which, there will also be a giant blue whale skeleton on display. For the car lover there will be a classic car show. For a comical diversion, there is an ugly dog contest--the ugliest dog takes the grand prize! Of course the crown jewel of this annual event is the logging show; men and women who live in Mendocino, Humboldt and Lake County compete in an exciting variety of events for more than $7,000 in prize money! 

To top off the fun, the Paul Bunyan Days Labor Day Parade will take place from 11-1pm on Labor Day. Expect to see some funky floats, lively bands, and marching groups of all stripes, sizes and abilities.

If you are you the fence about your Labor Day weekend plans, ponder no longer! Come join us for a guaranteed fun time!
