Locals come out to celebrate McCloud’s lumber town heritage at the Annual McCloud Lumberjack Fiesta. It was one of those events with a strong local showing – softball teams, horseshoe throwing partners, little kids to skilled veterans participating in the logging show. Kids playing on the giant slide and small water slides, adults sitting in the shade chatting it up. On the two softball fields, teams were playing hard in the Papa Anderson Memorial Softball Tournament. You could stuff yourself in the morning at the American Legion pancake breakfast or watch the kids stuff themselves later at the watermelon eating contest. It is one of those small, local events that is all about community.
