Paul Bunyan Days in St. Maries Idaho

Labor Day Weekend in St. Maries comes alive with the annual Paul Bunyan Days celebration. All are welcome to attend three days of logging competitions, water events, Moto-cross races, carnival rides, food vendors, craft vendors, music, fireworks show and much more! Plus shop St. Maries’ sidewalk sales for great bargains. The city park boasts “The Biggest Topless Bar in Idaho” called the Blue Ox (the beer garden doesn’t have a roof!). Sunday at dusk is one of the country’s largest arena fireworks shows, and Monday morning is the Labor Day parade – bigger and better every year.
